Meat, medicine, and human health in the twentieth century by Christian Bonah( Book )

By the beginning of the twentieth century, meat eating was a regular part of daily life in the Western world. Whilst the extra protein in this diet had a beneficial effect on growth and resilience to certain diseases, excessive amounts were found to promote cancer, heart disease and obesity. When it comes to meat this is often what we talk about today: its implications for us, our planet and our health. However, few seem to agree on what these implications are. This collection of ten historical essays explores some of the complex relations between meat and human health in twentieth-century North America and Europe. Its subjects include the relations between the meat and the pharmaceutical industries, the slaughterhouse and the rise of endocrinology, the therapeutic benefits of meat extracts and the short-lived fate of liver ice-cream in the treatment of pernicious anaemia. Other articles examine responses to BSE and bovine tuberculosis, cancer and meat consumption, DES in cattle, American-style meat in Mexico and Nazi attitudes towards meat eating. Together these papers highlight a complicated array of often contradictory attitudes towards meat and human health

Le Dust Bowl, la politique de conservation des ressources et les écologues aux Etats-Unis dans les années 1930 by Christophe Masutti( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans l'histoire des Etats-Unis des années trentes, les préoccupations liées à l'écologie scientifique se déploient à de multiples niveaux, sociaux, politiques et économiques. En effet, la crise agricole américaine, durant dette période, pose clairement la question de la gestion des ressources naturelles, dont les enjeux se doublent d'une catastrophe sans précédent, le Dust Bowl, l'érosion éolienne des sols agricoles dans les grandes plaines. En histoire de l'écologie, la période des années trentes est centrale. Elle est essentiellement comprise par les historiens de l'écologie comme un tournant épistémologique qui voit surtout l'émergence d'une figure, celle de l'expert-écologue, et la diffusion des idées de l'écologie dans les processus décisionnels de la conservation et de la réhabilitation des ressources agricoles. Cette thèse se propose de reconsidérer cette histoire en focalisant le propos sur le Dust Bowl. Un tel choix permet de sonder finement les interactions entre l'écologie et la politique de conservation des ressources, de décrire les réseaux des acteurs scientifiques et politiques, et d'analyser les changements disciplinaires et institutionnels qui en ont résultés
