            Every day, around 4.5 billion people consume bread. For thousands of years, it has been one of the staple foods of humankind, as present in stories from the Bible as it is when we share a meal with friends. Many types of bread are representative of the societies that bake them - ...baguettes in France, challah in Israel, injera in Ethiopia - and the bread you eat (or don't eat) can say a lot about who you are, even today. In Bread, critically-acclaimed author Rob Penn tells the fascinating story of our relationship with this food: from the domestication of wheat in the Fertile Crescent at the dawn of civilisation, to the groundbreaking advances in harvesting and the iconoclastic artisan bakers of today. Along the way, he meets the unsung heroes behind the loaves we eat - wheat growers, grain merchants, millers and bakers - all of whom, over the course of a year, will teach him how to plant, harvest, thresh and winnow his own wheat in order to bake his own bread. Taking us from the Karaca Mountains in south-east Turkey to the subsistence farms of Rajasthan, and from the banks of the Nile to the fabled boulangeries on the Seine in Paris, Bread is a universal celebration of a millennia-old tradition and the people who make it happen. Its story is the story of humanity.

            A passionate and factually grounded argument for responsible meat production and consumption For decades it has been nearly universal dogma among environmentalists that many forms of livestock-goats, sheep, and others, but especially cattle-are Public Enemy Number One. They erode... soils, pollute air and water, damage riparian areas, and decimate wildlife populations. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations bolstered the credibility of this notion with its 2007 report that declared livestock to be the single largest contributor to human-generated greenhouse-gas emissions. But is the matter really so clear-cut? Hardly. In Defending Beef, Second Edition, environmental lawyer turned rancher Nicolette Hahn Niman argues that cattle are not inherently bad for the earth. The impact of grazing can be either negative or positive, depending on how livestock are managed. In fact, with proper oversight, livestock can play an essential role in maintaining grassland ecosystems by performing the same functions as the natural herbivores that once roamed and grazed there. The ideas and information covered in the first edition of Defending Beef are even more timely than when the book was originally published in 2014. In public discussions and media, more attention than ever is being paid to connections between health and diet, food and climate, and climate and farming-especially cattle farming. A wealth of new resources, studies, and analyses-along with a great deal of mainstream media coverage-is now devoted to these important topics. But it's not all good news, because the vast majority of such media coverage is devoid of essential details, holistic thinking, or even the slightest hint of nuance. It is reductionist and simplistic, with facile descriptions of problems and overly simplified solutions. As H. L. Mencken said so well, For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong. For instance, Niman exposes the widespread fallacy that c
