The Food Chain: A Game of Choice, Allaby, Michael
2 Allaby, Michael The Food Chain: A Game of Choice
U. K. Andre Deutsch 1984 0233976817 / 9780233976815 1st Edition Hard Cover Good 12mo 
176 pages including an introduction with 5 pages and 500 numbered paragraphs.This book is a game, like the adventure games you may have played before, and in it you play the part of a ruler. As you read the 500 numbered paragraphs, you have suggested choices which lead you from paragraph to paragraph, just as you would in an adventure game, but the choices you have to make are concerned with the real world, and with feeding hungry people. You will meet famine, civil war, food riots and have to decide between the different claims of people in your country. You may be tempted to give up, but there are successful solutions, only the search for them is long and hard. When you see pictures on television of starving people, usually their misery is due to a local catastrophe. Perhaps there has been an earthquake, or an unusually long drought, or perhaps they are running away from a war that has destroyed their homes and their farms. We send help to such people. We send medicines, blankets, clothes, and we send food. They can be helped because we can see quite clearly what it is they need. This book is people we see less often. They suffer because they are poor; they are poor in ways we ?nd it dif?cult to understand. Do you receive pocket money each week? How much? Let us suppose you are given $1 - and many young people receive more than that. This means that not counting birthday or Christmas money, or special spending money for holidays, you receive $52 a year. That is about as much as the average person earns in a year in Bhutan, the world’s poorest country. That amount must buy food, clothes, fuel for cooking and heating, and it must pay for the home and its repair.

I'm Not Scared, Ammaniti, Niccolo
3 Ammaniti, Niccolo I'm Not Scared
Australia Text Publishing 2004 187700846X / 9781877008467 Reprint Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
215 pages. Translated from the Italian as: "Io non ho paura" which was first published by Giulio Einaudi Editore 2001. Winner of the prestigious 2001 Viareggio-Repaci Prize for Fiction. 1978, the hottest summer of the twentieth century. In a tiny Italian rural community, the adults shelter indoors while six children venture out on their bikes across the scorched, deserted countryside. In the midst of a sea of golden wheat, nine-year-old Michele Amitrano discovers a secret so momentous, so terrible, that he dare not tell anyone about it. To come to terms with what he finds, he will have to draw strength from his own imagination and sense of humanity. The reader witnesses a dual story: the one that is seen through Michele's eyes, and the tragedy involving the adults of this isolated hamlet. The result is an immensely powerful, lyrical and skilfully narrated novel, reminiscent of such classics as Stand By Me, To Kill a Mockingbird andThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer. A compelling and utterly absorbing read, I'm Not Scared reinforces Ammaniti's status as a major literary talent. Winner of the Viareggio-Repaci Prize for Literature. Niccolo Ammaniti has written two collections of short stories and six novels, four of which have been translated into English. He was the youngest ever winner of the Italian Viareggio Literary Prize for Fiction for his best-selling novel I'm Not Scared,which has been translated into thirty-five languages. The Crossroads received the Premio Strega Prize in 2007, Italy's equivalent to the Booker Prize. Review: This gripping American debut by Italian novelist Ammaniti captures well the vagaries of childhood: the shifting alliances, the casual betrayals and the mix of helplessness and earnest audacity with which children confront adult situations. Nine-year-old Michele Amitrano lives with his little sister, devoted mother and distant father in a rural Italian hamlet consisting of five dilapidated houses. In the sweltering summer of 1978, he and a group of his friends strike out on their bikes across the barren, scorched hills. While exploring an abandoned house, Michele discovers what he believes to be the dead body of a boy his own age. He cannot bring himself to tell his friends. When he tries to tell his father, the elder Amitrano brushes him off. Drawn back to the site, Michele discovers that the boy is not dead, but weak, disoriented and unable to account for his presence there. Michele brings the boy food and water and slowly learns more about him. The boy's story-which includes kidnapping and ransom-are too much for a nine-year-old to fathom and involve virtually every adult in the tiny community. Yet Michele decides that he must do something to help the boy. Part mystery, part morality play, the novel is written in simple, spare prose. The characters, particularly that of Michele, spring to life, and the story builds to a heart-stopping climax. Readers will find this accomplished work hard to put down and even harder to forget. (Feb.) Forecast: This novel was a bestseller in Italy, and while that doesn't usually translate into U.S. sales, Ammaniti's masterful use of suspense should help win him an American following. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information. 'Niccolo Ammaniti is the best novelist of his generation.' Il Giornale 'Ammaniti, one of the most admired figures on the Italian fiction scene...uses short sentences like the cracks of a whip and sharp paragraphs to make our hearts race and carry us to the edge of the abyss.' ABC, Spain 'Ammaniti is a born story-teller.' L'Unita 'Readers will find this accomplished work hard to put down and even harder to forget.' Publishers Weekly 'A tense, breathless book, written with self-confidence and vitality.' La Stampa 'Readable in one breath...moving, impressive, amazing. It reminds you of Italo Calvino, but a Calvino warmed by a humanity that is not afraid to roll around in the mud.' Panorama 'Confirms his extraordinary narrative talent, over which he superimposes an atmosphere of horror and marvel.' (Le Monde.)

Australia New Holland 2006 1741103681 / 9781741103687 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
255 pages. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and more. California as you've never seen it before. Award winning travel author Ann Rickard decided to take a road trip around California (with a small detour to Nevada and Las Vegas). With her husband Geoffrey they hire a car and explore the breadth and depth of this rich and fascinating American state: there's the gold country and cowboy towns, the glamour of Hollywood and the breathtaking nature of Yosemite, junk food and gourmet cuisine, the 800 miles (not kilometres) of beautiful coastline and, to the authors great relief and delight, a wine region. Ann declares at the outset that she likes America and Americans, and this is reflected in the narrative as she reveals the weird and wacky side of the Californian Dream with light-hearted insights and comical asides. Geoffrey, he of the ever-ready corkscrew, keeps a steady hand on the wheel as this road trip unravels. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and the biggest backsides on the planet. Yes, this is California, but not as you've seen it before.

Australia Australian Academy of Science 1981 0858470950 / 9780858470958 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xvi + 143 pages. Research into lead and the Australian health environment brought some unexpected answers: Some evidence suggested lead is added in some way to food and beverages during processing, some children ingest lead from dust or dirt, from lead paint on old houses, lead toys or dust on clothes of family members who work in the lead industry - Australia IS one ‘of the world's largest producers of lead. There is, however, no clear-cut level of lead concentration in blood above which adverse effects are observed. While the researchers said their findings on humans did not give rise to grave concern, their conclusion was that certain limited populations are at risk and require identification. Lead from motor exhausts does not produce signs and symptoms of clinical lead poisoning. But, reports from overseas and Australia suggest adverse effects from this may be less obvious, especially on the mental and behavioural developments of children.

Who Will Feed China? Wake-Up Call for a Small Planet (The - Worldwatch Environmental Alert Series), Brown, Lester R.
15 Brown, Lester R. Who Will Feed China? Wake-Up Call for a Small Planet (The - Worldwatch Environmental Alert Series)
U.S.A. W. W. Norton & Company 1995 039331409X / 9780393314090 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
165 indexed pages. To feed its 1.2 billion people, China may soon have to import so much grain that this action could trigger unprecedented rises in world food prices. In Who Will Feed China: Wake-up Call for a Small Planet, Lester Brown shows that even as water becomes more scarce in a land where 80 percent of the grain crop is irrigated, as per-acre yield gains are erased by the loss of cropland to industrialization, and as food production stagnates, China still increases its population by the equivalent of a new Beijing each year. When Japan, a nation of just 125 million, began to import food, world grain markets rejoiced. But when China, a market ten times bigger, starts importing, there may not be enough grain in the world to meet that need - and food prices will rise steeply for everyone. Analysts foresaw that the recent four-year doubling of income for China's 1.2 billion consumers would increase food demand, especially for meat, eggs, and beer. But these analysts assumed that food production would rise to meet those demands. Brown shows that cropland losses are heavy in countries that are densely populated before industrialization, and that these countries quickly become net grain importers. We can see that process now in newspaper accounts from China as the government struggles with this problem. In an integrated world economy, China’s rising food prices will become the world’s rising food prices. China’s land scarcity will become everyone’s land scarcity. And water scarcity in China will affect the entire world. China’s dependence on massive imports, like the collapse of the world’s fisheries, will be a wake-up call that we are colliding with the earth’s capacity to feed us. It could well lead us to redefine national security away from military preparedness and toward maintaining adequate food supplies. There is a name in the first page.

Australia Univ of Queensland Pr 2006 0702235423 / 9780702235429 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
204 pages. A humorous look at a usually lofty and intimidating topic the meaning of life this book documents one man's uphill journey to enlightenment. Explaining the attractions (and pitfalls) of a pick-and-choose approach, the discussion covers Eastern and Western beliefs, all the while elucidating their practices through personal anecdotes. An attack of existentialism, a dogged attempt to discover God through poetry, a doomed holiday at a health farm, and time spent at a ritual Egyptian dance workshop are some of the instructive stories offered, complete with such odd characters as a saffron-turbaned Dadaji, the poet Les Murray, and a Catholic priest who stops taking the author's calls. Phil Brown's life has been one long existential crisis. His path to enlightenment has been uphill - think of climbing Everest with a colonic irrigation or two along the way. Join Phil as he searches for meaning in the most unlikely places. Phil's journey begins inauspiciously when he is carted out of a health farm on a stretcher - good food and vigorous exercise apparently weren't a clever idea for a man with a stomach ulcer and a fear of vegans. Once back from the emergency ward, Phil gingerly dips his toes into a variety of experiences, from speaking in tongues to a ritual Egyptian dance workshop, not to mention meaning-of-life seminars and meditation. With a cast of curious characters including Guru Bubba John, Les Murray and a dial-a-clairvoyant, not to mention Phil himself, this hilarious book will have you doubled up with laughter. Settle yourself into the lotus position, grab a cup of peppermint tea, and enjoy the ride.

192 pages. Cholesterol may not be the killer we've all been led to believe. In an examination of the most up-to-date research into cholesterol and heart disease, internationally respected nutritionist, Dr Robert Buist, sheds new light on the way we approach heart disease. Dr Buist presents clear evidence that: slightly elevated cholesterol levels are not associated with an increased risk of dying from heart disease; dramatically reducing your dietary cholesterol can lead to an increased risk of cancer, suicide. accidents or violent death; no-cholesterol diets are unsuitable for people with high cholesterol; stress alone can elevate cholesterol. Up to now, too much emphasis has been placed on an extremist dietary view towards preventing heart disease. while little attention has been paid to the most important aspect - good balanced nutrition. Under Dr Buist's innovative healthy-heart programme. you can have a cup of filtered coffee or a glass of wine: you can eat red meat and prawns; butter, salt and eggs are back on the menu: you can even eat foods high in fat - as long as the fat is in the right composition and you are moderate in your intake. The key is to let food become your cardiovascular medicine and by following Dr Buist's delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes, it's simply a matter of eating your way to a healthy heart.
