Annie and Dan Shannon, the authors of Betty Goes Vegan, are back. In their new book, they show readers how to cook creatively and thriftily with recipes, sidebars, and tips on stocking a pantry and using ingredients creatively.

Inspired by the recipes and cost-saving techniques used during the Depression and World War II and paying a vegan homage to Julia Child, The Shannons have figured out how to get the most out of what you've already invested so that you can spend less and get more. With recipes like Korean Kimchi BBQ Burgers, Vegan Yankee Pot Roast, Not-cho Everyday Chili Dogs, and Savannah Pecan Pies, MASTERING THE ART OF VEGAN COOKING offers a way to make eating vegan both affordable and delicious.

Gender Violence in Peace and War: States of Complicity (Genocide, Political Violence, Human Rights)

Best price for this book: $ 22.56

Buy
Reports from war zones often note the obscene victimization of women, who are frequently raped, tortured, beaten, and pressed into sexual servitude. Yet this reign of terror against women not only occurs during exceptional moments of social collapse, but during peacetime too. As this powerful book argues, violence against women should be understood as a systemic problem—one for which the state must be held accountable. 
 
The twelve essays in Gender Violence in Peace and War present a continuum of cases where the state enables violence against women—from state-sponsored torture to lax prosecution of sexual assault. Some contributors uncover buried histories of state violence against women throughout the twentieth century, in locations as diverse as Ireland, Indonesia, and Guatemala. Others spotlight ongoing struggles to define the state’s role in preventing gendered violence, from domestic abuse policies in the Russian Federation to anti-trafficking laws in the United States. 
 
Bringing together cutting-edge research from political science, history, gender studies, anthropology, and legal studies, this collection offers a comparative analysis of how the state facilitates, legitimates, and perpetuates gender violence worldwide. The contributors also offer vital insights into how states might adequately protect women’s rights in peacetime, as well as how to intervene when a state declares war on its female citizens.

"From start to finish, this book is a gem. I can't think of a mother who shouldn't read it, whether you have a newborn or grown children, you will totally relate to these funny and heartwarming stories. This second edition includes 18 new essays from some amazing authors. Having bought the first 'Motherhood May Cause Drowsiness,' I was delighted to read this new edition. One of my favorite quotes from the book: Organic homemade cakes made out of kale and promises. This book is funny and then funnier.

"If you are a sleep deprived mom or know one, this is a book you definitely want to read. I know my best friend with a new baby is getting one instead of onesies and baby bottles!"--Stephanie Marsh, We Don't Chew Glass
***
"The second edition was as delightful and inspiring as the first! A sweet reminder that I'm not crazy for always being exhausted--and that laughing about all the mess is a REALLY good thing. Thanks, ladies--you nailed it again!"--Meredith Spidel, Mom of the Year
***
"Highly enjoyed my advance copy of 'Motherhood May Cause Drowsiness.' From funny stories, like Lea Grover's 'Bedtime Lament,' to practical advice such as Newlin de Rojas' 'Seven Sacred Sleep Tenets,' there is something for every mom in this book. Child induced sleepiness is something to which every mother can relate and it is reflected perfectly in this collection of stories. Every mom needs to hear that they are not alone and that is just what they will get from this funny and touching book. A perfect Mother's Day gift or New Mother gift."--Erin Buhr, Bambini Travel
***
"Those who are fighting the battle of sleep deprivation will more than relate to this collection of stories from the trenches. Annie Swingen perfectly describes the feelings of guilt and self-doubt in the 'The New Parent Guilt Trip.' Renea Dearing-Dijab humorously admits to judging others before having kids herself--something most parents have done. There are plenty of laughs and commiseration for new parents that should get them through those wee hours of the morning."--Bunny B., 'Picky buyer'
***
"The stories are sometimes thought-provoking ('What Mommies Need: Hint: It's Not Sex'), sometimes laugh-inducing, and--most importantly--ALWAYS honest. This book is highly-relatable, easy-to-digest read for all moms out there. Totally recommended!"--Jessica Burdg
