Worth Talking About
Our colleagues at H-Environment have just published the following two book reviews. The first is of Robin O'Sullivan's American Organic: A Cultural History of Farming, Gardening, Shopping, and Eating. Next is a review of Michelle Mart's Pesticides, A Love Story: America's Enduring Embrace of Dangerous Chemicals.
Here's a review of Katharina Vester's A Taste of Power: Food and American Identities that was published by our colleagues over on H-Soz-u-Kult. Please note the review was originally written in German. The text below has been through Good Translate which, well, so shaky that almost considered not bothering to share this.
