French gastronomy : the history and geography of a passion by Jean-Robert Pitte ( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Why did the passion for food -- gastronomy -- originate in France? The key, it turns out, is France itself. In its climate, diversity of soils, abundant resources, and varied topography lie the roots of France's food fame. Pitte masterfully reveals the ways in which cultural phenomena surrounding food and eating in France relate to space and place

Bordeaux/Burgundy : a vintage rivalry by Jean-Robert Pitte ( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Seeking to penetrate the mysteries of two great wine regions - "two opposite civilizations, two distinct ways of feeling" - Jean-Robert Pitte embarks upon an evocative and fascinating exploration of the land, people, and wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. His account is a rich tapestry of terroir, history, culture, and economics from Roman to modern times. The unique qualities of the wines of each region, Pitte believes, cannot be entirely explained by the differences in their physical environments: they have social origins as well. Beginning with an entertaining look at the remarkable variety of insults exchanged by partisans of the two regions, Pitte delves into the key role played by medieval monks, dukes, and peasant vignerons in building their respective reputations and in creating the rivalry between bourgeois Bordeaux and earthy Burgundy that we know today. His sparkling, fair-minded narrative, engaging the senses and the mind alike, conveys a deep appreciation of two incomparable winegrowing cultures, united despite their differences by a common ambition to produce the best wines in the world

La mondialisation : données, mécanismes et enjeux by Claude Manzagol ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in French and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ouvrage d'initiation aux grands concepts, aux processus dominants, aux dynamiques, aux dysfonctionnements, aux organisations et aux faits qui structurent l'économie mondiale. L'auteur s'inscrit dans une présentation renouvelée de la mondialisation en montrant comment la notion de "centre" exploitant des "périphéries" appauvries ne correspond plus entièrement à la réalité. L'interdépendance des économies qui tissent des liens Nord-Sud, l'émergence de zones dynamiques et les fractures géopolitiques remettent en question le système Monde qui est maintenant souvent étudié comme une imbrication de sous systèmes.
