Who was the first African-American senator? Who was the first woman to cast a vote in the New World? Have any gays or lesbians held state-wide office? The answers are here in The Almanac of Women and Minorities in American Politics. The culmination of Mart Martin's two years of diligent research, this is the first comprehensive single-volume reference to all women, African-Americans, Hispanics, Asian-Americans, native minorities, gays, and lesbians who have served in state or national elected positions, with additional information on local elected positions. Completely non-partisan and non-judgmental in approach, this valuable resource provides a complete reference on the “political” accomplishments of these people, as opposed to taking a “biographical” approach.Accurate, thoroughly factual, and up-to-date, this volume also features: a chronology from colonial times to the present for each ethnic group; a roster of political achievements in the United States by members of each group; details on women who have served as head of state/government in other countries; and “Notable Firsts” biographical sketches in each section. As the color and gender of our politics change, this almanac serves as an indispensable desk reference for teachers, students, journalists, and authors.

Winemakers Éric and Saskia de Rothschild lead readers through 150 vintages of Château Lafite, sharing scientific and climatic data and visual memories since the family's arrival in 1868. Over the past 150 years, six generations of the Rothschild family have attended to the winemaking tradition, developing Château Lafite's reputation and transforming this classified Premier Grand Cru into a benchmark for fine wine in Bordeaux. Discover how this occurred and what actually lies behind Lafite's label through stories from the tightly-knit team of men and women who tend to Lafite wines. A chronology introducing each of the 150 vintages includes informative tasting notes, meteorological aspects, and the grape blends that mark each vintage. An archival gem has been unearthed for each year: from the harvesters' menu in 1922 to portraits by master photographers like Robert Doisneau, Richard Avedon, and Paolo Roversi. Space to record personal tasting notes allows readers to make this book their own, building their wine knowledge over time. The Lafite story--illustrated here with historical documents, press clippings, and photographs--combines deep respect for tradition with a commitment to evolve with the times, protecting Lafite's singular, vibrant, and evolving legacy for the next 150 years.

Have you ever wondered why the moon is sometimes blue? The New Almanac revives the tradition of the rural almanac for those who want to connect with the seasons through gardening, eating seasonally, moon-gazing, foraging, celebrating feast days and picking seasonal flowers. It brings you the tools and inspiration you need to celebrate, mark and appreciate each month of the year. For each of the 12 months, award-winning gardener and food writer Lia Leendertz shares her practical guidance for expeditions, meteor-spotting nights and beach holidays, as well as stories about each month's unique nature and folklore, and charts relevant to each month. Keep track of the phenomena of the universe with tables familiar to almanacs of the past: significant dates; phases of the moon; sunrise and sunset times; king tides; equinoxes, solstices and cross-quarter days; food in season; a forager's guide; meteor showers, visible planets and lunar eclipses; festivities (Samhain, Wassailing, Divali, Midsummer) and more. Lia also shares her favorite recipes using seasonal ingredients and relating to each month's festivity: Cider Cake for wassailing in January; Blood Orange Tart in February; Potato Kugel Gratin for Passover in April; Beltane Wine for May Day; Sticky Cinnamon Figs in September; and Soul Cakes at Hallowe'en. Filled with wonder, The New Almanac is a highly practical, historical and contemplative book to be enjoyed all year long, and it will have you looking forward to the next edition as the year draws to a close.
