African American foodways : explorations of history and culture( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moving beyond catfish and collard greens to the soul of African American cooking. Ranging over the progression from seventeenth-century West African fare to contemporary fusion dishes using "soul food" ingredients, this book provides an introduction to many aspects of African American foodways. Examining the combination of African, Caribbean, and South American traditions, the volume's contributors offer insights from history, literary studies, sociology, anthropology, and African American studies to demonstrate how food's material and symbolic values have contributed to African Americans' identity for centuries. Individual chapters examine how African foodways survived the passage into slavery, cultural meanings associated with African American foodways, and the contents of African American cookbooks, both early and recent
The historical cookbook of the American Negro by National Council of Negro Women( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1958, the National Council of Negro Women published a cookbook documenting their food heritage. Organized to serve as a means of observing annual holidays, it presented recipes from the earliest days of the nation, with contextual commentary. The cookbook marched boldly into territory beyond plantation life with exotica such as sukiyaki and Ceylon curry. A new reprint of The Historical Cookbook of the American Negro offers insight into both the cooking of the first generations of African Americans and the self-perception of their female descendants at the outset of the sixties' civil rights movement

Reel food : essays on food and film by Anne Bower( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book devoted to food as a vibrant and evocative element of film. It reads various films through their uses of Food - from major "food films" like Babette's Feast and Big Night - to less obvious choices including The Godfather trilogy and The Matrix. The contributors draw attention to the various ways in which food is employed to make meaning in film. In some cases, such as Soul Food and Tortilla Soup, food is used to represent racial and ethnic identities. In other cases, such as Chocolat and Like Water for Chocolate, food plays a role in gender and sexual politics. And, of course, there is also discussion of the centrality of popcorn to the movie-going experience. This book is a feast for scholars, "foodies," and cinema buffs. It will be of major interest to anyone working in popular culture, film studies, and food studies, at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Anne Bower's Reel Food is an intellectual feast, where each essay serves a delicious new course filled with meaty morsels and delightful aromas.; It provides thoughtful lenses in which to view the culinary dimensions of all films, but be prepared to reexamine the taste sensations of traditional food movies, such as Chocolat, Babette's Feast, Eat Drink Man Woman, and Tortilla Soup. I ignored the incessant urge to put the book down and head to out to the video rental store to pick up the films devoured in this book. I'll never look at a movie without seeing its culinary dimensions in new ways. So, make some popcorn and settle down in your easy chair--you're headed for a great read ''o Andrew F. Smith, editor-in-chief, Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America From sci-fi to horror, from romance to adventure, the films discussed in this collection are enriched by cogent analyses of the ways food is used to signal issues of cultural identity, assimilation, and conflict. With Reel Food, you won't need popcorn ''o Darra Goldstein, Editor, Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture Reel Food is the go-to book for anyone interested in the rich intersections between food and film studies.; The compelling, wide-ranging essays gathered here demonstrate that if you are interested in film, then you can't ignore food, and vice versa ''o Doris Witt, author of Black Hunger: Soul Food and America From sci-fi to horror, from romance to adventure, the films discussed in this collection are enriched by cogent analyses of the ways food is used to signal issues of cultural identity, assimilation, and conflict
Recipes for reading : community cookbooks, stories, histories by Anne Bower( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The community cookbook is a familiar item in many kitchens. Usually compiled by women and sold to raise funds for a charitable cause, these collections of recipes may seem to be utilitarian objects that exhibit little if any narrative interest. But this is hardly the case. In Recipes for Reading, scholars from a variety of disciplines examine community cookbooks as complex texts deserving serious study. The contributors contend that such cookbooks have stories to tell about the lives and values of the women who wrote them, stories that are autobiographical in most cases, historical in some, and fictive in others

The efficacy of botulinum toxin in treating musculoskeletal back pain and dysfunction by Anne Bower( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Title: The efficacy of botulinum toxin in treating musculoskeletal back pain and dysfunction. Clinical Bottom Line: At this point there is still limited research on the efficacy of botulinum toxin (BTX) for back pain. Our research found 2 articles examining generalized low back pain which provided convincing evidence for the efficacy of botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) in reducing pain and disability. In other subgroups of low back pain, the evidence in support of BTX effectiveness was less substantial. There were 2 articles that provided little evidence for the efficacy of BTX-A for myofascial pain syndrome, and there were 4 articles that provided moderate evidence for either BTX-A or BTX-B in treating piriformis syndrome. Of these, two articles show compounding effects of combining BTX injections with physical therapy intervention. Lastly, two articles were examined that showed little evidence for the efficacy of BTX-A in treating patients with chronic neck pain. Overall it appeared that there is potential for BTX to be beneficial to patients with chronic back pain in decreasing pain, especially for those who do not respond to more conservative approaches. We would like to see more long term follow up studies to determine if the decreases in pain and disability are continued after the effects of BTX have elapsed. Additionally, we would like to see more studies that examine if physical therapy, in conjunction with BTX injections, prolongs or enhances the treatment effect. Clinical Scenario: A patient with chronic LBP due to several MVAs approached us in the clinic and asked about the effectiveness of botulinum toxin to relieve his back pain. The patient has had extensive imagining done, and he has had disk herniation and nerve root impingement ruled out. This patient has been through several attempts at physical therapy, cortisone injections into multiple facet joints, and trigger point injections with lidocaine into the paraspinal musculature, all without relief. The patient⁰́₉s physiatrist has now recommended that he undergo a botulinum toxin injection to relieve tight back musculature and decrease pain. Our clinically answerable question: Population: The population that we are focusing on is patients with musculoskeletal pain attributed to: low back pain, piriformis syndrome, myofascial pain or chronic neck pain. Intervention: We wish to determine the efficacy of botulinum toxin for musculoskeletal pain in the back. Comparison: Our comparison group is a control group who will receive saline injections or steroid injections. Outcome: We wish to measure outcomes by decreased score on the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and/or increased scores on functional outcome measures
