Who are computer hackers? What is free software? And what does the emergence of a community dedicated to the production of free and open source software--and to hacking as a technical, aesthetic, and moral project--reveal about the values of contemporary liberalism? Exploring the rise and political significance of the free and open source software (F/OSS) movement in the United States and Europe, Coding Freedom details the ethics behind hackers' devotion to F/OSS, the social codes that guide its production, and the political struggles through which hackers question the scope and direction of copyright and patent law. In telling the story of the F/OSS movement, the book unfolds a broader narrative involving computing, the politics of access, and intellectual property. E. Gabriella Coleman tracks the ways in which hackers collaborate and examines passionate manifestos, hacker humor, free software project governance, and festive hacker conferences. Looking at the ways that hackers sustain their productive freedom, Coleman shows that these activists, driven by a commitment to their work, reformulate key ideals including free speech, transparency, and meritocracy, and refuse restrictive intellectual protections. Coleman demonstrates how hacking, so often marginalized or misunderstood, sheds light on the continuing relevance of liberalism in online collaboration.

"The Anthropology of Stuff" is part of a new Series dedicated to innovative, unconventional ways to connect undergraduate students and their lived concerns about our social world to the power of social science ideas and evidence. Our goal with the project is to help spark social science imaginations and in doing so, new avenues for meaningful thought and action. Each "Stuff" title is a short (100 page) "mini text" illuminating for students the network of people and activities that create their material world. From the coffee producers and pickers who tend the plantations in tropical nations, to the middlemen and processors, to the consumers who drink coffee without ever having to think about how the drink reached their hands, here is a commodity that ties the world together. This is a great little book that helps students apply anthropological concepts and theories to their everyday lives, learn how historical events and processes have shaped the modern world and the contexts of their lives, and how consumption decisions carry ramifications for our health, the environment, the reproduction of social inequality, and the possibility of supporting equity, sustainability and social justice.

Coffee is Good for You: From Vitamin C and Organic Foods to Low-Carb and Detox Diets, the Truth about Diet and Nutrition Claimsby Robert J. Davis
Though food is supposed to be one of life's simple pleasures, few things cause more angst and confusion. Every day we are bombarded with come-ons for the latest diet, promises for "clinically proven" miracle ingredients, and warnings about contaminants in our favorite foods. It's enough to give anybody indigestion. Packed with useful-and surprising-information, Coffee Is Good for You cuts through the clutter to reveal what's believable and what's not in a fun and easily digestible way. You'll find out: Locally grown produce isn't necessarily more healthful than fruits and vegetables from across the globe Alcohol does cause breast cancer You don't need eight glasses of water a day for good health Milk isn't necessary for strong bones Oatmeal really can lower cholesterol Sea salt isn't more healthful than regular salt Low-fat cookies may be worse for you than high-fat cheese .
This book covers the origins, botany, agro-ecology and worldwide production statistics of coffee, and the insect pests, plant pathogens, nematodes and nutrient deficiencies that afflict it.
Coffee, Tea, and Gluten Free: The Cookbook began at the request of several friends who admired my attempt to regain long lost cooking skills after learning to live gluten free. It has progressed beyond a simply gluten and lactose free. At the request of early readers, it includes accessibility for a multitude of allergies, and life situations. Hand and body dexterity are not always conducive to cooking and kitchen maintenance. Accessibility tips are included with each recipe. In today's fast paced world, it is easy to forget how long a recipe takes to prepare. Each recipe has a pre-preparation time, as well as a preparation, and cook time. Along with space to add notes specific to the cook's needs and equipment. Low vision also affects cooks. Many people with limited vision may never have cooked before recent technological innovations. Tips and techniques are provided, as well as room to add needed accessibility equipment. People who have a myriad of health issues should feel comfortable fixing the comfort foods they grew up on, even if it means new techniques, or flours, for doing so. This cookbook is intended for both the cook who has these ailments, and the family, or friend, who may cook a meal for them. A grandmother can circle all the allergies her grandchildren have, and label them by name, so she knows what to avoid in each dish, for each individual grandchild. Available recipes include strawberry pudding cake, pizza, mushroom smothered steak, ground beef burger and noodles, grilled sweet potatoes, and vegetable casserole.
