This book is a concise history of racism, written by a white man who spent a lifetime trying to understand racism before he found that history held the key. This book shows that racism is not a natural response to human differences. It was man-made deliberately implemented and carefully nurtured. It is an illness that has been passed down for generations; and continues to infect every one of us and all of our institutions.

The Food of a Younger Land: A portrait of American food from the lost WPA files by Mark Kurlansky

From the New York Times bestselling author who "powerfully demonstrates the defining role food plays in history and culture" (Atlanta Journal-Constitution). 

In the throes of the Great Depression, a make-work initiative for authors-called "America Eats"-was created by the WPA to chronicle the eating habits, traditions, and struggles of local Americans. Mark Kurlansky, author of Salt and Cod, unearths this forgotten literary treasure, chronicling a bygone era when Americans had never heard of fast food or grocery superstores. Kurlansky brings together the WPA contributions-featuring New York automats and Georgia Coca-Cola parties, Maine lobsters and Montana beaver tails-and brilliantly showcases them with authentic recipes, anecdotes, and photographs.
