Cambridge University Press, Cambridge: 0521620767 / 9780521620765 Second Edition. h Hardcover, no dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Over a period of several centuries, Europeans developed an intricate system of plantation agriculture overseas which was quite different from the agricultural system used at home. Though the plantation complex centered on the American tropics, its influence was much wider. Much more than an economic order for the Americas, the plantation complex had an important place in world history. These essays concentrate on the intercontinental impact. The contents of the book is as follows: Preface; Part I. Beginnings: 1. The Mediterranean origins; 2. Sugar planting: from Cyprus to the Atlantic islands; 3. Africa and the slave trade; 4. Capitalism, feudalism, and sugar planting in Brazil; 5. Bureaucrats and freelances in Spanish America; Part II. Seventeenth-Century Transition: 6. The sugar revolution and the settlement of the Caribbean; 7. Anarchy and imperial control; 8. Slave societies on the periphery; Part III. Apogee and Revolution: 9. The slave trade and the West African economy in the eighteenth century; 10. Atlantic commerce in the eighteenth century; 11. The democratic revolution in the Atlantic basin; 12. Revolution in the French Antilles; Part IV. Aftermath: 13. Readjustments in the nineteenth century; 14. The end of slavery in the Americas; Retrospect. "This study of the transfer of slave plantations from the eastern Mediterranean to the tropical New World demonstrates [Curtin's] insight into transregional patterns. The detail in his wide-ranging account is impressive, and it provides the reader with an informative overview." - David A. Chappell, Journal of World History

Rudy Blythe, the local bank president, and Toby Thulin, his chief loan officer, died in a sudden fusillade of precisely aimed bullets. The murders, the first in a string of violent outbursts across the troubled Midwest, were symptoms of painful changes creeping across that vast countryside, forever altering the farms, towns, and cities of the Heartland and the nation itself. Andrew H. Malcolm, who has covered the developing farm crisis as Chicago Bureau Chief for The New York Times, was at the scene.

13 MEGYESI, JENNIFER; HANSEN, GEOFF (PHOTOGRAPHY). The Joy Of Keeping Chickens: The Ultimate Guide To Raising Poultry For Fun Or Profit.
Skyhorse Publishing, New York: 2009. Second Printing. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Finally, a bible for backyard farmers that's attractive enough to leave out on the coffee table and inexpensive enough to purchase on a whim. This comprehensive guide, written in charming prose from the perspective of an organic farmer, will appeal to readers who want to learn more about chickens. Includes an Index. "Vermont organic farmer Megyesi has raised poultry for several years, and her book is partially a personal account of her quest to develop a humane production system that addresses chickens' needs and behaviors. She also dutifully meets her other goal of informing potential backyard farmers on the intricacies associated with chicken husbandry. In addition to providing information on equipment, housing facilities, and breeds found in a typical handbook, Megyesi goes into great detail on how to raise chickens on a small scale, defining terms like organic and free-range, discussing health issues, and even offering advice on showing chickens. Each chapter includes sidebars of additional tips, which are indexed for easy reference, as well as beautiful photographs accompanied by detailed descriptions. The easy-to-read prose makes this ideal for beginners; the book also includes resources and material for longtime chicken producers. Also provided are recipes for the eggs and meat that are produced. Megyesi's versatile book can accommodate several production management styles beyond her own experience. An excellent resource that provides a compassionate way to raise livestock for personal use, this is strongly recommended for public and academic libraries." - Kyrille Goldbeck, Library Journal
