            In the course of research, Tim Spector has been shocked to discover how little scientific evidence there is for many of our most deep-rooted ideas about food.

            The Simbu of highland New Guinea knew only their tribal mountain valley until 1933, when airplanes and white strangers intruded upon their world. Beyond a Mountain Valley focuses on Simbu memories, performance, and conceptions over the last sixty years, particularly those relatin...g to interactions with newcomers and other island peoples. Simbu speak of their awakening, their transitions, their heroes, and their future. Paula Brown provides a thoughtful critique of historical anthropology over the past decade, as well as a discussion of cohorts, generations, and life-course that will serve as a model for students of historical and cultural change in tribal societies. In addition to interviews and life stories collected by the author and others, the work draws on an exhaustive supply of ethnographic sources, including letters, diaries, and government reports, expertly woven together in a compelling narrative.

From the inner workings of Washington DC during a diplomatic visit from John Key, to the surreal visual delights of San Francisco's infamous BDSM street fair, with Voyages in America James Robinson takes us with him deep into... the American cultural abyss as he trades New Zealand in for a new life States-side. Drawing off his popular Stuff.co.nz blog, Voyages in America alternates between homesick and entertained, angry and amused; a story about how the places we come from shape who we are and how even when you can go anywhere, home is still the hardest place to find.
