Drugs in America: A Social History, 1800-1980

by H. Wayne Morgan

This book developed out of my general interest in the late nineteenth century. While reading through the popular press in connection with another project, I discovered a great deal of comment on the "opium problem," and on drug use in general. I unearthed several addict memoirs and other unusual sources, and the medical literature proved a gold mine of information. After further research, it seemed to me that a brief general survey of the question with some depth and fresh information was in order, and this book is the result.

The Druid of Harley Street

by William Stranger E. Graham Howe

In early 20th-century Britain, interest in psychoanalysis was high, leading to the formation of the famous Tavistock Clinic in 1920. E. Graham Howe was one of the clinic's founders and the first to publish articles on psychotherapy. At the same time, he was attacked by the "scientific" psychiatry and psychoanalysis communities because he took concepts derived from spiritual practice and existential phenomenology and applied them to an understanding of psychotherapy. Howe's writings included more than a dozen books and countless articles on a broad range of subjects from schizophrenia to Asian spiritual practices. Through these works he exerted a profound influence on intellectuals such as R. D. Laing, Alan Watts, and Henry Miller, to name a few. Howe also wrote in a simple and clear style, making his work accessible to the general public. The Druid of Harley Street samples the best of his essays, offering timely insights for followers of Jung, Roberto Assagioli, and Mark Epstein; students of somatic therapies; and spiritual and meditation practitioners. The book also offers a fascinating glimpse of a great mind, the notable people in his life, and the heady times in which he lived.From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Duke's Table: The Complete Book of Vegetarian Italian Cooking

by Enrico Alliata

An encyclopedic collection of vegetarian recipes from Italy--learn how to make all of the classic dishes without meat"Even though man can draw all he needs in the way of nourishment from a mere handful of seeds and fruit, he must not give up a proper meal." --Enrico AlliataEnrico Alliata, the Duke of Salaparuta (1879-1946), was a utopian gourmand and winemaker who espoused a vegetarian lifestyle and a raw foods diet at a time when the very notion was unheard of. He worked for decades to systematically re-imagine classic Italian dishes without meat. The result, first published in 1930, is a timeless reference work, with dishes that are surprising, inventive, and often decadent. Early chapters like "Appetizers and Salads" include recipes for inventive vegetarian sandwiches and crostini, as well as refreshing salads (and even a recipe for simple homemade ricotta cheese). "Broths and Purees" includes rich and flavorful vegetable broths, hearty purees, and pasta in broth, like vegetarian 'Agnollotti' in broth filled with parmesan and walnuts. The "First Courses, Pasta Dishes and Timballi" chapter is a comprehensive collection of authentic Italian recipes for gnocchi, risotto, polenta, ravioli, from Risotto 'alla Milanese' with saffron, nutmeg, and parmesan to Sicilian Style Gnocchi, with fried eggplant and tomato sauce. "Luncheon Dishes, Vegetables, Legumes and Side Dishes" features preparations for eggplant and artichokes, and is a great go-to for quick side dishes and lighter vegetarian meals. His main dishes chapters include a variety of casseroles and soufflés, and the Duke even has several preparations for mock meats, such as vegetarian "Foie Gras Mousse" made with ricotta cheese and black truffles. Much more than a recipe book, The Duke's Table is a major re-discovery and a fascinating look into the philosophy of a food revolutionary who was truly before his time.From the Hardcover edition.
