Das Bild des Bauern

Bilder von Bauern ziehen sich durch die europäische Geschichte. Die landwirtschaftlich tätige Bevölkerung war gleichermaßen Inbegriff von Beharrungskraft und Konservatismus, Kontrastfolie zur urbanen Moderne, Objekt des Spotts und der mystifizierenden Verklärung. Der Band vereinigt Makro- und Mikroperspektiven zu deutschen und europäischen Bauern vom Mittelalter bis in die Gegenwart. Die Beiträge fragen nach Verschiebungen und Zäsuren, diskutieren regionale und geschlechtsspezifische Differenzierungen und kontrastieren Selbst- und Fremdbeschreibungen. Dabei zeigt sich, dass das Bild des Bauern über die Beschreibenden nicht weniger aussagt als über die Beschriebenen.

Start Your Farm, the first comprehensive business guide of its kind, covers these essential questions and more: Why be a farmer in the 21st century? Do you have what it takes?

How do you build connections with employees, colleagues, and customers? At the end of the day, how do you measure success? (Hint: Cash your lifestyle paycheck.) More than a practical guide, Start Your Farm is a hopeful call to action for anyone who aspires to grow wholesome, environmentally sustainable food for a living. Take it from Forrest Pritchard and Ellen Polishuk: Making this dream a reality is not for the faint of heart, but it's well within reach—and there's no greater satisfaction under the sun!

Das Omnivoren-Dilemma

Wie sich die Industrie der Lebensmittel bemächtigte und warum Essen so kompliziert wurde

Das Standardwerk über vernünftige Ernährung Der Mensch gehört von der Konsititution seiner Verdauungsorgane her zu den Omnivoren, den Allesfressern. Das war in der Evolution sicherlich nützlich. Doch das heutige Überangebot von Nahrungsmitteln in Supermärkten und Schnellrestaurants bringt nicht nur ihn selbst körperlich an den Rand des Abgrunds, sondern ruiniert auch noch seinen Lebensraum und sein soziales Umfeld. Mit Biss und investigativer Recherche sieht sich Pollan um, wie unsere Nahrungsmittel hergestellt und verarbeitet werden, vom Maisfeld über Cheeseburger mit Pommes bis zum Öko-Menü. Er öffnet uns die Augen für unser gestörtes Essverhalten und für den Weg zurück zu Einfachheit und Genuss.
