Throughout American history, ingestion (eating) has functioned as a metaphor for interpreting and imagining this society and its political systems. Discussions of American freedom itself are pervaded with ingestive metaphors of choice (what to put in) and control (what to keep out). From the country’s founders to the abolitionists to the social activists of today, those seeking to form and reform American society have cast their social-change goals in ingestive terms of choice and control. But they have realized their metaphors in concrete terms as well, purveying specific advice to the public about what to eat or not. These conversations about “social change as eating” reflect American ideals of freedom, purity, and virtue. Drawing on social and political history as well as the history of science and popular culture, Dangerous Digestion examines how American ideas about dietary reform mirror broader thinking about social reform. Inspired by new scientific studies of the human body as a metabiome—a collaboration of species rather than an isolated, intact, protected, and bounded individual—E. Melanie DuPuis invokes a new metaphor—digestion—to reimagine the American body politic, opening social transformations to ideas of mixing, fermentation, and collaboration. In doing so, the author explores how social activists can rethink politics as inclusive processes that involve the inherently risky mixing of cultures, standpoints, and ideas.

This book is part of Hyperink's best little books series. Our best little books are 3,500-5,000 words of fast, entertaining information on a highly demanded topic. Based on reader feedback (including yours!), we may expand this book in the future. If we do so, we'll send a free copy to all previous buyers. ABOUT THE BOOK French Women Dont Get Fat, by Mireille Guiliano, soared to the top of the New York Times Best Seller List in 2005, offering millions of American women insight on how their Euro counterparts managed to stay slender even though they indulged in decadent food and wine. The book remained popular for a number of years due to its wonderful content and easy-to-use exercise, diet, and lifestyle tips. Despite these useful resources, it never gained the same celebrity as another French-based sensation, The Dukan Diet. When Dukan made its North American debut in April 2011, its cover featured a plate with two Eiffel Towers and the defiant words, The Real Reason The French Stay Thin. Though shes no Frenchwoman, Kate Middleton unintentionally emerged as The Dukan Diets celebrity spokeswoman in 2011 as she prepared for her spring wedding with Prince William. According to the Los Angeles Times, Middleton noticeably dropped a couple of dress sizes, allegedly due to the diet created by Dr. Pierre Dukan. MEET THE AUTHOR An obsession with Chicago's vibrant dining and drinking scenes drove Audarshia Townsend to first write for respected publications like Essence, Chicago Reader and the Chicago Defender. And her foray into the online world began as one of the first two editors at metromix.com--where they set the tone for the successful entertainment site's cutting-edge style. She also has written lifestyle features for the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and Upscale magazine. Then she co-penned two tomes, Cheap Chow Chicago: Third Edition and BlackBook Chicago Guide 2008. Audarshia continues to write cocktail-, dining- and lifestyle-oriented stories for Dining Chicago, Michigan Avenue Magazine and Playboy (as well as appears regularly on WCIU-TV's "You & Me This Morning" and "The G Spot Radio Show"). EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Yager broke down the diet in her Huffington Post column. After evaluating it, she concluded, if the dieter can stick with it to the end, ultimately the diet becomes very French eating well and moving more, with discipline. Popular television personality, Dr. Oz, offers valuable advice for those considering starting the Dukan diet in an article on doctoroz.com. He writes, on the plus-side, the Dukan Diet gives you long-term management skills and generous flexibility with fruits and some carbohydrates. Adding, if you are going to try the Dukan Diet, be careful to avoid yo-yo dieting where you gain and lose weight between phases. To stay safe, modify the diet so that its more along the lines of the Ultimate Diet, which provides more stability. Buy a copy to keep reading!

This book provides a selection of private letters written to family and friends from a variety of people while they were on the Grand Tour in the eighteenth century. Although many have been published previously, this is the first time that letters of this kind have been brought together in a single volume. Readers can compare the various responses of travellers to the sights, pleasures and discomforts encountered on the journey. People of diverse backgrounds, with different expectations and interests, give personal accounts of their particular experiences of the Grand Tour. Unlike most collections of letters from the Tour, which recount the views of a single person, this selection emphasises diversity. Readers can juxtapose for example the letters of a conscientious young nobleman like Lyttelton with those of the excitable philanderer Boswell, or the well-travelled aristocratic lady, Caroline Lennox. While the travellers represented here follow much the same route via Paris, through France and across the Alps via the terrifying Mount Cenis, to Rome, in the pursuit of learning and pleasure, the Tour turns out to mean something quite different to each of them.
