»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Vom alten England in die Straßencafés von Paris, über das in der Augusthitze flirrende Korsika bis ins pulsierende New York führt uns diese fesselnde Familiensaga. Sie erzählt von der Macht der wahren Liebe über Jahrzehnte, Kontinente und Generationen hinweg – und davon, wie Herzen und Familien gerade dann miteinander vereint werden, wenn sie für immer verloren scheinen. England, 1928: Alice und Tom kennen sich aus unbeschwerten Kindertagen: sie, die vor Energie sprühende junge Aristokratin, und er, der noch unbekannte Maler. Ihre Liebe fühlt sich an wie die reinste Magie – doch nicht nur Alices Familie setzt alles daran, eine gemeinsame Zukunft zu verhindern. London, sechzig Jahre später: Die junge Fotografin Kate findet im Nachlass ihrer Großmutter eine alte Porträt-Skizze, die ihrer verstorbenen Mutter verblüffend ähnlich sieht. Was hat es mit der Zeichnung auf sich? Und wer ist die Frau darauf? Um dem Geheimnis um das Porträt und um die Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter näher zu kommen, macht sich Kate auf die Suche nach dem Künstler, dem berühmten Maler Thomas Stafford ... Die Stunde der Liebenden erzählt von Sehnsucht und Hoffnung, von Verlust und Schmerz, von Abenteuer und Freiheit. Davon, aus Konventionen auszubrechen und den Mut zu finden, seine Ängste zu überwinden. Und vor allem von Liebe und Nähe, die man zulassen muss, um sein Glück im Leben zu finden.

Plants are fundamental to life; they are used by all human groups and most animals. They provide raw materials, vitamins and essential nutrients and we could not survive without them. Yet access to plant use before the Neolithic can be challenging. In some places, plant remains rarely survive and reconstructing plant use in pre-agrarian contexts needs to be conducted using a range of different techniques. This lack of visible evidence has led to plants being undervalued, both in terms of their contribution to diet and as raw materials. This book outlines why the role of plants is required for a better understanding of hominin and pre-agrarian human life, and it offers a variety of ways in which this can be achieved. Wild Harvest is divided into three sections. In section 1 each chapter focuses on a specific feature of plant use by humans; this covers the role of carbohydrates, the need for and effects of processing methods, the role of plants in self-medication among apes, plants as raw materials, and the extent of evidence for plant use prior to the development of agriculture in the Near East. Section 2 comprises seven chapters which cover different methods available to obtain information on plants, and the third section has five chapters, each covering a topic related to ethnography, ethnohistory, or ethnoarchaeology, and how these can be used to improve our understanding of the role of plants in the pre-agrarian past.

While presenting the latest scientific research on the major pathogens associated with meat, poultry, produce, and other foods, Pre-Harvest and Post-Harvest Food Safety: Contemporary Issues and Future Directions goes beyond other professional reference books by identifying the research needed to assure food safety in the future. The editors and authors not only review the current, cutting-edge literature in each of their areas, but provide insights and forward thinking into the development of new and innovative approaches and research strategies. Scientists and researchers from academia, government, and industry have collaborated to examine the high-priority food safety areas recognized by the federal government: pathogen/host interactions; ecology, distribution and spread of foodborne hazards; antibiotic resistance; verification tests; decontamination and prevention strategies; and risk analysis. A worthy new edition to the IFT Press series of food science and technology titles, Pre-Harvest and Post-Harvest Food Safety describes what we now know in food safety and provides a framework and focus for future research to improve diagnostic capabilities and intervention strategies for enteropathogens.
