The Spirit of Capitalism According to the Michelin Company

Anthropology of an Industrial Myth

The city of Clermont-Ferrand in central France is inextricably linked to the global tire company Michelin—not only by the industrial, social, and economic realities that tie employees to employer, but also by a multi-generational, regional belief in the company’s entrepreneurial mythos, the so-called “Michelin spirit.” Since the 1980s, transformations in capitalist systems have challenged the Michelin ideology: the end of corporate paternalism, the reduction of the work force, and a new wave of managers have left employees in the region feeling the sting of abandonment. Even in the face of these significant changes, however, the ethnographic enquiry at the heart of this book testifies to the enduring strength of the “spirit of capitalism”: even as the bonds between employees, companies, and their regions are undergoing significant transformation, entrepreneurial myths endure—in part in fear of the end of a secure, organizing structure.

Discover the ingenious recipes and unrivalled attention to detail that made Pollen Street Social a name in the restaurant world, and follow the remarkable journey of a chef who took a risk to fulfil his dreams. Pollen Street Social is more than just a restaurant. Now, in this extraordinary book by the man who made it a reality, you will find out why. This stunning book showcases the very best recipes from the acclaimed Pollen Street Social, Jason Atherton's award-winning London restaurant. Opening in 2011, Pollen Street Social was awarded a coveted Michelin star just six months after opening, and the accolades and awards have continued ever since, and these pages highlight exactly why. The eponymous restaurant is famed for using the very best and freshest produce, and, following the seasons, Jason and his team take inspiration from the suppliers who put their heart and soul into producing the ingredients that form the dishes. With this focus on the importance of his suppliers running throughout, this book also details Jason's journey and his passion for every dish on the menu. The dishes featured range from canapés and afternoon tea to recipes such as Fruits of the Sea, Cartmel Valley Venison Loin and Pistachio Souffle, each of which is beautifully photographed by John Carey. “Jason is a marvellous chef that feeds the soul and leads the way for many young chefs, demonstrating what it is to be a chef in the 21st century.” Ferran Adria “Jason has mastered the art of creating social places, where people feel good and eat well, and which could be seen as the essence of deformalised dining. A visionary in his own right with a clear grasp of today's international restaurant scene.” Alain Ducasse “Jason Atherton is a realist not a fantasist. He has turned his dreams into reality.” Marco Pierre White

Edith Wharton and Mary Roberts Rinehart at the Western Front, 1915

 By 1915, the Western Front was a 450–mile line of trenches, barbed wire and concrete bunkers, stretching across Europe. Attempts to break the stalemate were murderous and futile. Censorship of the press was extreme—no one wanted the carnage reported. Remakably, the Allied command gave two intrepid American women, Edith Wharton and Mary Roberts Rinehart, permission to visit the front and report on what they saw. Their travels are reconstructed from their own published accounts, Rinehart’s unpublished day-by-day notes, and the writings of other journalists who toured the front in 1915. The present authors’ explorations of the places Wharton and Rinehart visited serves as a travel guide to the Western Front.

Food and drink has been a focal point of modern social theory since the inception of agrarian capitalism and the industrial revolution. From Adam Smith to Mary Douglas, major thinkers have used key concepts such as identity, exchange, culture, and class to explain the modern food system. Food, Politics, and Society offers a historical and sociological survey of how these various ideas and the practices that accompany them have shaped our understanding and organization of the production, processing, preparation, serving, and consumption of food and drink in modern societies. Divided into twelve chapters and drawing on a wide range of historical and empirical illustrations, this book provides a concise, informed, and accessible survey of the interaction between social theory and food and drink. It is perfect for courses in a wide range of disciplines.
