Glossary of key terms. Obesity prevalence in the U.S. is the highest among developed countries, a situation that calls for a nationwide understanding of this complex phenomenon. Brief yet comprehensive, The Obesity Epidemic in North America offers a much-needed examination of the effects of human evolution, environmental changes, human variation, poverty, and culture. An ideal supplement in nutritional anthropology or medical anthropology classes, the book's rare biocultural perspective helps readers grasp the root causes of obesity. As Bellisari sees it, the medical and nutrition-science fields are fully engaged in developing strategies to address the obesity problem. It is institutions, such as political and economic organizations, as well as society itself, that need to become more proactive in improving obesity-related public health. This text provides a giant first step toward that end. Originally published: New York : Atlantic Monthly Press, ©2007. 1st American ed.

"Known for her meticulous, textural photographic process, Lee brushes liquid emulsion onto the surface of handmade Korean mulberry paper. The texture of the paper and the gestural marks of the brushstroke create a unique, painterly effect, which is beautifully reproduced in this, her first major trade monograph. Wind captures the ethereal quality of its namesake in a series of landscapes dominated by windswept expanses and foreboding cloud formations - panoramas that reveal an adventurous spirit, yet resist casual entry. Man -made objects, such as a dilapidated school bus or wind- blown prayer flags, frequently appear marked by powerful, invisible elements. Metaphors for an interior state of being and the forces that shape it, Lee's landscapes are imbued with an elemental vastness, at once powerful and serene." "A preface by Vicki Goldberg offers insight into Lee's background and discusses the essential nature of the landscape, which communicates not merely its surface, but resonates within our deepest cultural and individual being. And, an essay by Eugenia Parry addresses the tension inherent in symbolizing what cannot be seen, exploring what absorbs the silent viewer and leads to worlds beyond the senses."

--Book Jacket. Joshua, who was adopted as an older child, lives in an interracial home with two mothers. This story follows his adventures in his elementary and middle school years. Samuel Harper was born in 1884 in Tanana, Alaska. His parents were Arthur Harper and Jenny Seentaáns. He married Louise Minook (1892-1968) in 1907. They had ten children. Samuel died in 1837 in Fairbanks, Alaska. Descendants and relatives lived mainly in Alaska. Middle-aged and elderly women discuss the challenges, as well as the opportunities, of refashioning their identities in conversations with NPR journalist Connie Goldman. [In this volume, the author] discusses the conception, gestation, life, and afterlife of history's most powerful book. [She] analyzes the social and political situation in which oral history turned into written scripture, how this all-pervasive scripture was collected into one work, and how it became accepted as Christianity's sacred text. She explores how "as the pragmatic scientific ethos of modernity took hold, scripture was read for the information that it imparted" and how, in the nineteenth century, historical criticism of the Bible caused greater fear than Darwinism.
