    Book summary:

    Provence is loved for its sunlit beauty and earthy, tantalizing cuisine. Both are celebrated in Provence the Beautiful Cookbook, an oversized (more than two feet tall!) picture and cookbook of breathtaking color photos and authentic regional recipes. The 270 recipes, compiled and written by award-winning food book author Richard Olney, include soups and starters; seafood, meat, game, and poultry dishes; vegetable and grain specialties; and simple but luscious desserts. Readers seeking an armchair tour of the region, singularly depicted, and the chance to see and reproduce its dishes, will delight in the book, which would also make a welcome gift.

    Beginning with an introduction to the land and its cooking, the book then weaves short essays about the Provençal regions with recipes arranged by courses. There are exemplary versions of bouillabaisse and bourride (the creamy, garlic-infused fish chowder), estouffade (braised beef, here with olives and mushrooms), daubs (stews), vegetable-filled omelets, and tians (savory gratins). Less familiar treasures include a mixed herb pasta from Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, porgy with crab sauce from the Var, a braised stuffed lamb shoulder from Vaucluse, zucchini and rice gratin from the Alpes Maritimes, and dried figs in thyme and red wine syrup, also from the Var. The recipes reflect Olney's unerring palate and dedication to tradition; some cooks may find certain dishes beyond their reach, but all will discover approachable recipes that are easily made. Wine information and a glossary conclude the portrait of Provence and its table--a feast for the eye and palate alike. --Arthur Boehm

    Find signed collectible books: 'Railways and the Victorian Imagination'
    Book summary:

    This book offers a new cultural history of the railway age in Britain. As the newly constructed railways transformed the landscape and the economics of nineteenth-century Britain, they transformed the very culture itself, and this richly illustrated account records and illuminates that transformation.

    From geological studies to the walls of the Royal Academy; from rapidly growing atheism to innovative games for children; from Darwinism to the temples of capitalism -- almost every aspect of human endeavor was informed by and related to the developing railway. Musical scores that sought to mimic the rhythms of steam locomotion and libraries of books devised to be read on trains and sold at station book stalls were just some of the consequences of feats of physical engineering that exceeded all previous undertakings, and of joint-stock companies larger by far than the East India Company or any other previously in existence. These developments also brought about new attitudes to time, to distance and consequently to employment, to leisure, and to life itself. This lively book recovers through its images, its anecdotes, and its arguments the life and the world that the railways made.

    The cultural dimension of the railway age is often overshadowed by its mechanical and physical elements. Here, the very centrality of the railway in the literary, artistic, and imaginative life of the nation is set side by side with its financial, speculative, and economic dimension to provide a highly original and fascinating insight into the realities of Victorian life.

    Book summary:

    Sudan: The Land and the People presents the whole of Africa's largest country. Nearly one-third the size of the United States, Sudan sprawls over more than one million square miles. Here for more than a thousand years Arabs and Africans have collided and blended to produce people who share a turbulent history and rich cultural heritage. Arab and African alike divide into tribes. More than 350 unique languages, customs, and artistic traditions combine to form the ethnic patchwork of Africa's most diverse country. Internatonally renowned photographer Michael Freeman traveled the lenght and breadth of Sudan to capture these extraordinary photos of modern Sudan.

    Sudanese diversity begins with its geography. Deserts, salt-washed seacoast, riverine and forest lushness, rock and hill and dry wash, lake and stream, rapids and cascades all catch the eye and challenge human resource. Sudan's richness is not only in its water, minerals, and oil, but in its ethnic and cultural mixture. Its promise lies in a durable end to conflict through acceptance of its plurality and diveristy to realize prosperity for an entire region.
