Sugar is everywhere. Once confined to candy, desserts, and the sugar bowl, it has made its way into our peanut butter, bread, tomato sauce, and salad dressing. The average American eats nearly 130 pounds of added sugar a year, and 75 percent of 86,000 foods analyzed in one study contained added sweeteners. This information is now at the forefront of media, public policy, and water cooler conversation, and Americans are wising up to what a sugar-laden diet means for their health: added pounds that won't budge; heightened risk of Alzheimer's, diabetes, and heart disease; moodiness; fatigue; and cravings that seem to rule their daily lives.

Readers came out in droves when Prevention launched its Sugar Smart movement, making The Sugar Smart Diet a New York Times bestseller and creating a demand for more sugar-savvy content from the brand. Now, Anne Alexander has revamped her popular plan to give readers what they've been asking for: an easy-to-follow plan that offers great results in less time, with even more tools for success.

New content includes:
- a new, 21-day plan to sweet freedom that scales back each phase without sacrificing results
- shopping lists and a more comprehensive dining out guide to make eating on the plan a breeze
- healthy, delicious recipes the whole family-even veggie-averse kids-will gobble up
- updated success stories and "Sugar Smart Hacks" from The Sugar Smart Diet test panel

John White Alexander: An American Artist in the Gilded Age

Pittsburgh-born John White Alexander (1856-1915) was an internationally recognized portrait painter, on a par with his contemporaries John Singer Sargent and William Merritt Chase. However, the works that have earned him even greater acclaim than his portraits are his figure paintings of women striking evocative poses and elaborately arranged in flowing dresses. His talent blossomed after he encountered Juliette Very, the Parisian model who became his muse. In finding his own unique style, he applied the lessons of muted and harmonious coloration from James McNeil Whistler and learned to use bold abstract forms and flowing lines from the post-impressionist group of painters, the Nabis. This biography is the first to provide an in-depth account of Alexander's varied life and a career practised between America and Europe.

Sugar is the most controversial subject in the American diet debates today―alternately viewed
as public health enemy No. 1 and an innocent indulgence. A New York Times bestseller in hardcover, The Sugar Smart Diet reveals the suite of hidden sugars in food that have skyrocketed the nation's annual sugar intake to more than 130 pounds per person (sugar is not hiding where most people think), identifies which popular sugar increases the body's ability to store fat, and explains how excess sugar leads to diabetes, heart disease, and more.

The Sugar Smart Diet's 32-day plan uniquely addresses the emotional and physiological effects of sugar, empowering readers to take charge of sugar, rather than letting sugar take charge of them.

"Once rare in the human diet, sugar is now ubiquitous and often hidden in unexpected places. Simply becoming aware of sugar can help you cut your intake, which is one of the smartest moves you can make to achieve optimal wellness. This informative guide tells you how to do that."―Dr. Andrew Weil

Bread, Freedom, Social Justice: Workers and the Egyptian Revolution

Anne Alexander

Best price for this book: $ 22.17

Buy

Accounts of the Arab Spring often focus on the role of youth coalitions, the use of social media, and the tactics of the Tahrir Square occupation. This authoritative and original book argues that collective action by organised workers played a fundamental role in the Egyptian revolution, which erupted after years of strikes and social protests.

Drawing on the authors' decade-long experience of reporting on and researching the Egyptian labour movement, the book provides the first in-depth account of the emergence of independent trade unions and workers' militancy during Mubarak's last years in power, and and their destabilising impact on the post-revolutionary regimes.

"Guten Tag, ich bin mit einer Frau von Schoenecker verabredet", sagte der große, schlanke Mann, der eben die Halle des Kinderheimes Sophienlust betreten hatte. "Mein Name ist Holstein, Peter Holstein!" Fragend blickte er Schwester Regine an. "Ich komme doch nicht zu früh?" "Nein, Herr Holstein, Frau von Schoenecker erwartet Sie bereits", erwiderte die junge Kinder- und Krankenschwester und stellte sich ebenfalls vor. "Wenn Sie mir bitte folgen würden!" Sie machte eine einladende Geste.

Denise von Schoenecker, die Verwalterin des Kinderheimes, empfing den jungen Mann im büroähnlichen Empfangszimmer. Nachdem sie ihn freundlich begrüßt hatte, sah sie ihn forschend an. "Sie schrieben in Ihrem Brief, dass sie Ihren Sohn nur kurzfristig bei uns unterbringen möchten." "Ich hoffe, es ist nur für einige Wochen", sagte Peter. Er lachte. "Ich habe keineswegs vor, aus Tobias eines Ihrer Dauerkinder zu machen. Dazu habe ich ihn viel zu lieb. Ich würde niemals auf ihn verzichten." Er griff in seine Jackentasche und zog eine Farbfotografie heraus. "Das ist Tobias!" Stolz reichte er Denise das Foto. "Was für ein herziges Kerlchen!" Denise konnte ihren Blick nicht von dem Foto wenden.

Black Nature: Four Centuries of African American Nature Poetry

Best price for this book: $ 21.56

Buy

Black Nature is the first anthology to focus on nature writing by African American poets, a genre that until now has not commonly been counted as one in which African American poets have participated.

Black poets have a long tradition of incorporating treatments of the natural world into their work, but it is often read as political, historical, or protest poetry―anything but nature poetry. This is particularly true when the definition of what constitutes nature writing is limited to work about the pastoral or the wild.

Camille T. Dungy has selected 180 poems from 93 poets that provide unique perspectives on American social and literary history to broaden our concept of nature poetry and African American poetics. This collection features major writers such as Phillis Wheatley, Rita Dove, Yusef Komunyakaa, Gwendolyn Brooks, Sterling Brown, Robert Hayden, Wanda Coleman, Natasha Trethewey, and Melvin B. Tolson as well as newer talents such as Douglas Kearney, Major Jackson, and Janice Harrington. Included are poets writing out of slavery, Reconstruction, the Harlem Renaissance, the Black Arts Movement, and late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century African American poetic movements.

Black Nature brings to the fore a neglected and vital means of considering poetry by African Americans and nature-related poetry as a whole.
