In 1978, San Francisco, a city that has seen more than its share of trauma, plunged from a summer of political tension into an autumn cascade of malevolence that so eluded human comprehension it seemed almost demonic. The battles over property taxes and a ballot initiative calling for a ban on homosexuals teaching in public schools gave way to the madness of the Jonestown massacre and the murders of Mayor George Moscone and city supervisor Harvey Milk at the hands of their former colleague, Dan White. In the year that followed this season of insanity, it made sense that a band called Dead Kennedys played Mabuhay Gardens in North Beach, referring to Governor Jerry Brown as a "zen fascist," calling for landlords to be lynched and yuppie gentrifiers to be sent to Cambodia to work for "a bowl of rice a day," critiquing government welfare and defense policies, and, at a time when each week seemed to bring news of a new serial killer or child abduction, commenting on dead and dying children. But it made sense only (or primarily) to those who were there, to those who experienced the heyday of "the Mab." Most histories of the 1970s and 1980s ignore youth politics and subcultures. Drawing on Bay Area zines as well as new interviews with the band and many key figures from the early San Francisco punk scene, Michael Stewart Foley corrects that failing by treating Dead Kennedys' first record, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, as a critical historical document, one that not only qualified as political expression but, whether experienced on vinyl or from the stage of "the Mab," stimulated emotions and ideals that were, if you can believe it, utopian.

The forbidden fruit. Yes, it’s just as it sounds. The journey was looked at by many as esoteric. Meaning, many could or would not understand my journey, that it was weird and out of the norm. I so very much wanted to be normal and, like as they say, popular. But instead, I lived in those shadows till I realized that, hey, others had a life and could and did make their choices. So why couldn’t I? I bit down on that forbidden fruit and never looked back. Come what may! But I had to live, or my other option was to exist and eventually die unfulfilled from a poor, defeated life! Many say that with this choice came hell, but wasn’t I already in hell? This was how I truly felt, and there was only one way out, so I took that huge leap of faith and won. But it hasn’t always been a fairy tale, as you now know, so it’s kind of a great feeling to come clean about it all. Much love, hope, and promise to all of you!

In Forgotten Fruits, Christopher Stocks tells the fascinating - often rather bizarre - stories behind Britain's rich heritage of fruit and vegetables. Take Newton Wonder apples, for instance, first discovered around 1870 allegedly growing in the thatch of a Derbyshire pub. Or the humble gooseberry which, among other things, helped Charles Darwin to arrive at his theory of evolution. Not to mention the ubiquitous tomato, introduced to Britain from South America in the sixteenth century but regarded as highly poisonous for hearly 200 years. This is a wonderful piece of social and natural history that will appeal to every gardener and food aficionado.

The audience was completely silent the first time Billie Holiday performed a song called "Strange Fruit." In the 1930s, Billie was known as a performer of jazz and blues music, but this song wasn't either of those things. It was a song about injustice, and it would change her life forever. Discover how two outsiders—Billie Holiday, a young black woman raised in poverty, and Abel Meeropol, the son of Jewish immigrants—combined their talents to create a song that challenged racism and paved the way for the Civil Rights movement.

James Beard Foundation Book Award Winner From the author of the acclaimed 97 Orchard and her husband, a culinary historian, an in-depth exploration of the greatest food crisis the nation has ever faced—the Great Depression—and how it transformed America’s culinary culture. The decade-long Great Depression, a period of shifts in the country’s political and social landscape, forever changed the way America eats. Before 1929, America’s relationship with food was defined by abundance. But the collapse of the economy, in both urban and rural America, left a quarter of all Americans out of work and undernourished—shattering long-held assumptions about the limitlessness of the national larder. In 1933, as women struggled to feed their families, President Roosevelt reversed long-standing biases toward government-sponsored “food charity.” For the first time in American history, the federal government assumed, for a while, responsibility for feeding its citizens. The effects were widespread. Championed by Eleanor Roosevelt, “home economists” who had long fought to bring science into the kitchen rose to national stature. Tapping into America’s long-standing ambivalence toward culinary enjoyment, they imposed their vision of a sturdy, utilitarian cuisine on the American dinner table. Through the Bureau of Home Economics, these women led a sweeping campaign to instill dietary recommendations, the forerunners of today’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans. At the same time, rising food conglomerates introduced packaged and processed foods that gave rise to a new American cuisine based on speed and convenience. This movement toward a homogenized national cuisine sparked a revival of American regional cooking. In the ensuing decades, the tension between local traditions and culinary science has defined our national cuisine—a battle that continues today. A Square Meal examines the impact of economic contraction and environmental disaster on how Americans ate then—and the lessons and insights those experiences may hold for us today. A Square Meal features 25 black-and-white photographs.

“Woman Alone” is a vision and dream of mine out of experiences of feeling alone within my marriage. It tells of both my personal struggles in my marriage and my attempt to help women and men to understand their completion of each other through their spiritual growth from wisdom found in the Holy Bible. There is a deep hurt and a deep longing in our hearts. When we feel alone - that hurt can only be fixed by God Himself. There are Bible Scriptures to help us to be healed and feel His love. There are scripture answers to all relationship questions. I believe that reading and studying the bible will bring total family victory. We can overcome the issues of life and come up to a greater family unit. I believe that through the plan of God we can develop an unconditional love for each other and be happy and stay in the marriage for a life time. -Gladys L. Jackson

This is a fictional inside look in answer to the question, What’s it like being married to an astronaut? I was an Apollo wife in the sixties, which gives me a unique perspective from which to write this book. This is the feminine view of the space race and has never been done before by an insider. Keeper of the Flame is a metaphor for the universal story of every traditional married woman who found herself exposed to the possibilities offered by the changing world of the sixties. It will also appeal to those younger women who struggle to combine career and family. Jennifer Davis, devoted mother of four and wife of an Apollo astronaut, had dreamed of being a lawyer. Instead, she married and started a family while her twin brother went to law school. Although the women’s movement tells her she can have a career of her own, she supports her husband in his quest for the moon. Her husband is a good but neglectful man who is driven by his need to excel at whatever he does. His time and attention are focused exclusively on the moon to the detriment of his family and his relationship with Jennifer. Jennifer pushes the traditional envelope of her life as far as she’s able without jeopardizing Evan’s chances or neglecting her children. NASA lets Evan know he needs to rein her in. Meanwhile, the astronauts, like rock stars, are allowed every indulgence offered by an adoring public. In spite of Jennifer’s conventional upbringing, an intense relationship with a television director Mason Sears, who is filming a documentary on her family, threatens to become intimate during her husband’s one-month stay on the moon. An emergency on the lunar surface, endangering the crew, causes her to reexamine her core values. She meets the tough choices that face her head on.
