The manger or Macy's? Americans might well wonder which is the real shrine of Christmas, as they take part each year in a mix of churchgoing, shopping, and family togetherness. But the history of Christmas cannot be summed up so easily as the commercialization of a sacred day. As Penne Restad reveals in this marvelous new book, it has always been an ambiguous meld of sacred thoughts and worldly actions– as well as a fascinating reflection of our changing society.

It wouldn't be Christmas without the "things." How they came to mean so much, and to play such a prominent role in America's central holiday, is the tale told in this delightful and edifying book. In a style characteristically engaging and erudite, Karal Ann Marling, one of our most trenchant observers of American culture, describes the outsize spectacle that Christmas has become, showing us the provenance and significance of each of its essential parts: the decorated trees and holiday lights, the cards and gifts and wrapping papers, the toy villages and store displays and Macy's holiday parade, Bing Crosby and Santa Claus.

Chinese-Japanese Cook Book (Cooking in America) by Onoto Watanna
English | Mar. 7, 2006 | ISBN: 1557093717 | 138 Pages | PDF | 34 MB

Published originally in 1914, this is the first Asian cookbook published in America. The fascinating new introduction by Asian cooking authority Jacqueline M. Newman reveals the trickery at play from the two sisters of Anglo-Chinese descent who wrote the book. The Chinese recipes are simple Chinese-American ones using ordinary ingredients. Many are for chop suey and chow mein using lots of celery, bean sprouts, and gravy.

As one of the original instructors at the Boston Cooking School, Maria Parloa inspired a generation of chefs with her scientific method of cooking. Her recipes reflect an interest in the chemistry of food. Instruction in the sciences was a key part of her curriculum. Originally published in 1880, The Appledore Cook Book aimed to provide a practical cookbook for ""young housekeepers"" with author-tested recipes that use easier methods and less expensive ingredients than those in other books.
