How America Lost Its Mind
The Assault on Reason That’s Crippling Our Democracy
Thomas E. Patterson
October 2019 208pp
9780806164328 Hardback
An urgent call for rational thinking and leadership in the service of American democracy. How America Lost Its Mind maps a political landscape convulsed with distrust, gridlock, brinksmanship, petty feuding, and deceptive messaging. As dire as this picture is, and as unlikely as immediate relief might be, Thomas Patterson sees a way forward and underscores its urgency. A call to action, his book encourages us to wrest institutional power from ideologues and disruptors and entrust it to sensible citizens and leaders, to restore our commitment to mutual tolerance and restraint, to cleanse the Internet of fake news and disinformation, and to demand a steady supply of trustworthy and relevant information from our news sources.

Diplomacy Shot Down
The U-2 Crisis and Eisenhower's Aborted Mission to Moscow, 1959–1960
E. Bruce Geelhoed
March 2020 336pp, 20 b&w images
9780806164854 Hardback
A behind-the-scenes look at the unmaking of history in the early Cold War. The history of the Cold War is littered with what-ifs and, in this book, E. Bruce Geelhoed explores one of the most intriguing: what if the Soviets had not shot down the American U-2 spy plane and President Dwight D. Eisenhower had visited the Soviet Union in 1960 as planned? In a blow-by-blow description of the diplomatic overtures, the U-2 incident, and the aftermath, Diplomacy Shot Down draws upon Eisenhower’s projected itinerary and unmade speeches and statements, as well as the American and international press corps’ preparations for covering the aborted visit, to give readers a sense of what might have been.

Gluten-Free Rocky Road Recipe

13 Jan 2020 17:08:16

Whether you suffer from coeliac disease or are simply looking to cut gluten out of your diet, this cookbook offers hassle free recipes to satisfy all tastes and skill levels.

This cookbook by Marlisa Brown is remarkably comprehensive, covering gluten-free and allergy-friendly recipes appropriate for any occasion. Be it a luxurious three course meal, a quick cook-up for the working week or homely Sunday comfort food. As a registered dietitian, chef and president of Total Wellness Inc, Marlisa Brown (who personally has cut gluten from her diet) has the accolades to compliment her recipes.

Not only does the book offer clear scientific information about the dietary restrictions and nutritional values of each recipe, it also delivers a homely touch to gluten-free cooking with its ‘home-made’ writing style and useful tips which encourage creativity and variations to suit different tastes. As someone who regularly received forlorn looks from my Food Technology teacher I opted for a ‘quick and easy’ Rocky Road recipe to test the waters. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and the results were delicious; Marlisa can take pride in the fact that she received a thumbs up from the Eurospan team.

Most of all, the cookbook delivers on Marlisa’s own aspiration that going gluten-free ‘doesn’t have to be frustrating, time consuming, expensive or tasteless’.
