Pollan writes about the ecology of the food humans eat and why--what it is, in fact, that we are eating. Discussing industrial farming, organic food, and what it is like to hunt and gather food, this is a surprisingly honest and self-aware account of the evolution of the modern diet.

The three groundbreaking books from our most trusted guide to food, now brought together for the first time In a few short years, Michael Pollan has completely transformed America’s understanding of eating. Now, Pollan on Food collects the New York Times–bestselling author’s three masterworks into one memorable package. First, the groundbreaking book that started it all, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, in which Pollan turns his own omnivorous mind to the seemingly straightforward question of what we should have for dinner. Next, with In Defense of Food, Pollan proposes a new (and very old) idea that comes down to seven simple but liberating words: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Finally, in Cooked, Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen; showing the enduring power of the four classical elements—fire, water, air, and earth—to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. Pollan on Food is the perfect answer for those looking to unravel the secret to good and healthy eating.

."What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's diet choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't, which mushrooms should be avoided, for example, and which berries we can enjoy. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.The cornucopia of the modern American supermarket and fast-food outlet has thrown us back on a bewildering landscape where we once again have to worry about which of those tasty-looking morsels might kill us. At the same time we're realizing that our food choices also have profound implications for the health of our environment. The Omnivore's Diet esther Roberta ph.d brilliant and eye-opening exploration of these little-known but vitally important dimensions of eating in America.We are indeed what we eat, and what we eat remakes the world. A society of voracious and increasingly confused omnivores, we are just beginning to recognize the profound consequences of the simplest everyday food choices, both for ourselves and for the natural world. The Omnivore's Diet is a long-overdue book and one that will become known for bringing a completely fresh perspective to a question as ordinary and yet momentous as "What shall we have for dinner?"

"The domestication of the potato serves as the focus of this synthesis of ethnobotany and chemical ecology. Johns considers the evolution of the human use of plants, the ways in which humans obtain foods from among the myriad poisonous and unpalatable plants in the environment, and the consequences of this history for understanding the basis of the human diet."--Back cover.

Archaeology and anthropology have come a long way in the pasthalf-century, and the 1950s thinking concerning the relationshipbetween the two is increasingly considered irrelevant. However, theplacement of archaeology within the discipline of anthropology hasalways been uneasy—and was just as much a half-century andmore ago as it is now. Is archaeology only now on the brink of"divorce" after decades of pleas for mutual respect and cooperationhave finally proven inadequate (Watson 1995)? Is separation theonly alternative left to sustain and further archaeology and tofinally shake off a second-class status to socioculturalanthropology that archaeologists have long contested (Willey andSabloff 1993:152)? In what sense can we profess that archaeology isstill anthropology? This volume evaluates the reasons proffered for separationagainst those in favor of maintaining the identity and practice ofarchaeologists as anthropologists. Arguments for the separation ofarchaeology from the discipline of which it has been a part forover a century take several different forms, weighing variousintellectual factors: historical, methodological, and theoretical.Recent changes in the practice of archaeology and in theorganization of professional societies must also be considered.

The second edition of Evolutionary Psychology is the only book on the market that shows the relevance of evolutionary thinking to the entire range of psychological phenomena, and it does so at a level appropriate for readers new to the field. Each chapter deals with a particular topic by illustrating how an evolutionary approach illuminates behavior as a response to problems faced by humans in our evolutionary past. The authors—representing the disciplines of both psychology and anthropology—present their material traditionally: they first provide the foundation for understanding the fundamentals of modern evolutionary theory; then systematically apply this theory to learning, cognition, perception, emotion, development, pathology, and more. For any reader interested in a richer understanding of human behavior and the psychological mechanisms that underlie it.
