The Cultural Construction of Human-Animal Relations in Childhood
Author: Matthew Cole
Category: Social Science
Focusing on the socialization of the human use of other animals as resources in contemporary Western society, this book explores the cultural reproduction of human-nonhuman animal relations in childhood. With close attention to the dominant practices through which children encounter animals and mainstream representations of animals in children's culture - whether in terms of the selective exposure of children to animals as pets or as food in the home or in school, or the representation of animals in mass media and social media - Our Children and Other Animals reveals the interconnectedness of studies of childhood, culture and human-animal relations. In doing so it establishes the importance of human-animal relations in sociology, by describing the sociological importance of animals in children's lives and children in animals’ lives. Presenting a new typology of the various kinds of human-animal relationship, this conceptually innovative book constitutes a clear demonstration of the relevance of sociology to the interdisciplinary field of human-animal relations and will appeal to readers across the social sciences with interests in sociology, childhood studies, cultural and media studies and human-animal interaction.

In the United States, there has been a 600 percent increase in the number of vegans from 2014 to 2017. But this isn't only happening in one country. Google Trends reports a significant increase in worldwide interest in the vegan diet in the last few years. Canada, Austria, New Zealand, Israel and Australia are just few of the many countries that are slowly but surely adopting the vegan diet and lifestyle. This shouldn't come as a surprise at all. The benefits of vegan diet have long been proven in scientific research. For one, the plant-based diet rich in more vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. Also, it can help people lose weight, lower blood pressure levels, enhance kidney function, protect against certain types of cancer, reduce risk of heart disease and alleviate muscle and joint pains, among others. If you're one of those people who want to live healthier and longer, and would like to give vegan diet a try, here's a book that can help you. With the recipes that you'll find in this book, you will see that the vegan diet doesn't require too much time and effort, and that it can easily be incorporated into your daily life.

More Than 150 Soul-satisfying Recipes for Easy and Delicious One-bowl and One-plate Dinners
Author: Robin G. Robertson
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Vegan books have risen to a dominant sales position in the vegetarian category. One-dish meals are perennially popular on American tables, and books devoted to one-dish cooking perform well. Robin Robertson’s One-Dish Vegan is the first book at the intersection of these two powerful cookbook categories. Robin Robertson has built a publishing record of very successful titles in the vegetarian category. She is known for her creativity in the kitchen, for the breadth of enticing ingredients and flavors with which she works, and for her expertise in vegetarian nutrition—with a special focus lately on how vegans still can get enough protein in their diets. Typically, it takes two or three courses or dishes to make a well-rounded vegan meal. To meet this criterion in one dish takes the kind of ingenuity and expert knowledge that Robertson possesses. One-Dish Vegan contains more than 150 recipes. They range from the most popular categories of one-dish dining like stews, chilis, and casseroles (and other baked dishes) to a host of stovetop sautés and stir-fries as well as substantial salads and dishes that feature pasta as well as other noodles, such as Asian noodles. The recipes are at once homey and adventuresome, comforting and surprising. Above all, they demonstrate that it really is possible to get a complete vegan meal into one dish, full of good-for-you nutrients and bright, satisfying flavors.
