Post Feeding Revolution/Revolutionary Food
GARDENING WHEN IT COUNTS: GROWING FOOD IN HARD TIMES By Steve Solomon
Rediscover traditional gardening methods and self-sufficiency. Solomon encourages us to get back to gardening by growing all of our family's food, using only a few hand tools, and no electricity or irrigation. In uncertain times, this book encourages gardeners to rely upon themselves when resources are limited. Helpfully illustrated and great for beginning or experienced gardeners.


HUNGRY FOR PROFIT: THE AGRIBUSINESS THREAT TO FARMERS, FOOD, AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Edited by John Bellamy Foster and Fred Magdoff
From biotechnology to farm workers movements to the origins of capitalism, "Hungry for Profit" covers a variety of topics relevant to today's food and agriculture crisis. What makes this collection of thirteen essays different from other such collections is that each issue is examined within a radical, socialist critique of capitalism.


ANIMAL INGREDIENTS A-Z
By the E.G. Smith Collective
An easy-to-use, concise reference for vegans, the health-conscious and merely curious which documents thousands of animal and animal-derived ingredients. Thoroughly researched using PETA, the Vegan Society & the manufacturers themselves, this guide demystifies postage stamps, maple
syrup, teas, chewing gums and the ever-confusing world of ciders.


RADICAL BREWING: RECIPES, TALES AND WORLD-ALTERING MEDITATIONS IN A GLASS
By Randy Mosher
Presenting a thought-provoking celebration of 12,000 years of the art of brewing. With over 100 complete recipes and an abundance of useful information for the novice as well as the grizzled veteran, Radical Brewing puts you in touch with some of brewing's most exotic--and delicious--brews. Lavishly illustrated and filled with fascinating tidbits of brewing lore, this is a brewing book unlike any other. From the arcane to the exuberant, the ancient to the futuristic, Radical Brewing encompasses the passion and vitality that makes the contemporary American brewing scene the envy of the world.


BAREFOOT AND IN THE KITCHEN: VEGAN RECIPES
By Ashley the illustrious AK intern
There are a plethora of vegan cookery books, zines, and pamphlets out there. Some are ok, some are good. A few are excellent. This definitely falls into the latter category. Both volumes are loaded with heaping platters of recipes, cooking tips, recommended reading, and a wonderfully irreverent (yet consummately useful) commentary throughout. A zine that positively drips taste, class, and style.


PLEASE, DON'T FEED THE BEARS: A VEGAN COOKBOOK
By Asbjorn Itonsus
In the vein of the classic Soy Not Oi cookbook, Please Don't Feed The Bears compiles three issues of the previously self-published vegan cook zine with a range of tasty and simple animal-free dishes. The collection finally makes available these long-obscure fanzines originally published in the mid 1990s. Here you'll find incredible recipes for stews, soups, sauces, noodle & bean dishes, baked entrees, deserts and more! There is also a fair smattering of new material bringing this to a whopping 160 pages of deliciousness! The book is thoroughly illustrated with eye-catching drawings and clearly laid-out graphics and includes assorted rantings about music and the politics of leading a vegan lifestyle.


VEGAN CUPCAKES TAKE OVER THE WORLD: 75 DAIRY-FREE RECIPES FOR CUPCAKES THAT RULE
By Terry Hope Romero and Isa Chandra Moskowitz
The hosts of the vegan cooking show "The Post Punk Kitchen" are back with a vengeance and this time, dessert. "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World" is a sweet and sassy guide to baking everyone's favorite treat without using any animal products. This unique cookbook contains over 75 recipes both innovative and classic for cupcakes and frostings with beautiful full color photographs.


THE CONQUEST OF BREAD
By Peter Kropotkin
A classic, "The Conquest of Bread" was a result of Kropotkin's
extensive research into industrial and agricultural production. Now, 100 years after the first edition was published, technology and society have changed enormously, but the practical consideration Kropotkin gives to the question of production and distribution in a revolutionary society is equally as important in the context of our globalised system of capital.


A HISTORY OF WORLD AGRICULTURE: FROM THE NEOLITHIC AGE TO THE CURRENT CRISIS
By Laurence Roudart and Marcel Mazoyer
Only once we understand the long history of human efforts to draw sustenance from the land can we grasp the nature of the crisis that faces humankind today, as hundreds of millions of people are faced with famine or flight from the land. From Neolithic times through the earliest civilizations of the ancient near East, in savannahs, river valleys and the terraces cre ated by the Incas in the Andean mountains, an increasing range of agricultural techniques have developed in response to very different conditions. These developments are recounted in this book, with detailed attention to the ways in which plants, animals, soil, climate, and society have interacted.

When I was at the VA Hospital with my father a few months ago one of the doctors told me I should read "The China Study." I guess China has very little trouble with heart disease.
