In Postmodern Winemaking, Clark Smith shares the extensive knowledge he has accumulated in engaging, humorous, and erudite essays that convey a new vision of the winemaker's craft--one that credits the crucial roles played by both science and art in the winemaking process. Smith, a leading innovator in red wine production techniques, explains how traditional enological education has led many winemakers astray--enabling them to create competent, consistent wines while putting exceptional wines of structure and mystery beyond their grasp. Great wines, he claims, demand a personal and creative engagement with many elements of the process. His lively exploration of the facets of postmodern winemaking, together with profiles of some of its practitioners, is both entertaining and enlightening.

The concept of terroir is one of the most celebrated and controversial subjects in wine today. Most will agree that well-made wine has the capacity to express “somewhereness,” a set of consistent aromatics, flavors, or textures that amount to a signature expression of place. But for every advocate there is a skeptic, and for every writer singing praises related to terroir there is a study or a detractor seeking to debunk terroir as myth. Wine and Place examines terroir using a multitude of voices and points of view—from winemakers to wine critics, from science to literature—seeking not to prove its veracity but to explore its pros, cons, and other aspects. This comprehensive anthology lets readers come to their own conclusions about terroir.

Louisiana, die 1940er-Jahre, ein elektrischer Stuhl wird in die kleine Stadt St. Martinsville gebracht für die geplante Hinrichtung eines jungen Schwarzen namens Will, der ein weißes Mädchen vergewaltigt haben soll. In Wirklichkeit ist sie seine Geliebte gewesen, die sich aus Verzweiflung umgebracht hat und ihm nun nicht mehr helfen kann. Alle wissen, dass das Todesurteil ein Skandal ist, aber sogar Will selbst hat aus Trauer und Schuldgefühlen innerlich eingewilligt, und weiße Wutbürger drohen dem zweifelnden Staatsanwalt mit der Entführung seines Sohnes. Nach einer wahren Begebenheit, psychologisch fein und in einer an William Faulkner erinnernden multiperspektivischen Intensität erzählt Elizabeth Winthrop die tragischen Ereignisse bis zum überraschenden Ende. Ein meisterhaftes Buch, das man nicht mehr aus der Hand legt und das niemanden kaltlassen wird.

Today's financial system is seen by the most as having a fixed size. Bernard A. Litaer challenges this perspective by showing that there were different economic systems in history and that our present system has arisen from a tacit and problematic collective acceptance. He sees the future in the development of complementary currencies. He explains which money is necessary for which needs and how we can commonly create it. Money only exists because of trust -- where trust has been destroyed, money is loosing its value; chaos and poverty are sad consequences. Lietaer has written an exciting and informative book for anyone who is aware of economic problems, from interested laymen to bankers. Das Geld- und Finanzsystem, wie wir es heute kennen, wird von den meisten als feste Grosse, ja als gottgegeben betrachtet. Bernard A. Lietaer zeigt dagegen, dass es im Laufe der Geschichte ganz andere Systeme gegeben hat und unsere derzeitige Finanzordnung einer stillschweigenden -- inzwischen hochst problematischen -- kollektiven Ubereinkunft entspringt. Die Zukunft sieht er in der Entwicklung von komplementaren Wahrungen. Er erlautert, welches Geld wir fur welche Aufgabe benotigen und wie wir es gemeinsam erschaffen konnen. Denn Geld besteht nur aufgrund von Vertrauen. Wo dieses Vertrauen zerstort wird, verliert Geld seinen Wert; Chaos und Armut sind die traurigen Folgen. Lietaer hat ein ebenso spannendes wie informatives "Enthullungsbuch" geschrieben, das sich vom interessierten Laien uberneugierige Banker an alle wendet, die sich der Geldproblematik bewusst sind.
