Its history, however, is more than simply a succession of happy family scenes and appealing exotic locations. The growth and development of the fruit we know and love today is entangled with colonial practices, capitalist enterprise, sexual politics and even horrific murders.Banana: A Global History takes us from the agricultural beginnings of the banana in New Guinea to its almost ubiquitous presence in culinary repertoires around the globe, from the United States to the Caribbean, from regions of Africa to the heart of Southeast Asia. The book gives us an insight into the life of the banana over millennia, focusing on our recent history and its cultural affair with the fruit. The global life of the banana is traced in cultural practices, advertising, commercial schemes and the unmissable icons of popular culture, from nineteenth-century medical manuals to cookbooks, songs, the famous 'banana peel gag' and the well-known Miss Chiquita icon.

- The easy way for women to stop drinking, Allen Carr 362.292 CAR
- Allen Carr's Easyway is the most effective stop-smoking method of all time and it has now been successfully applied to a wide range of other issues. Here the method focuses on one of the fastest-growing problems of modern times: women's drinking. Alcohol blights women's lives often in a different way to men's: women tend to stay at home drinking alcohol; women often feel particular shame over
drinking too much; drinking around children can be a particular burden; in summary there are a lot of added pressures on women to stop drinking and often they feel this is an impossible task. Luckily, Allen Carr's Easyway makes it easy to stop drinking. It's the tried-and-tested cessation method that really
works. With startling insight into why women drink and clear, simple, step-by-step instructions, Allen Carr shows you the way to escape from the alcohol trap in the time it takes to read this book. A unique method that does not require will power. Stop easily, immediately, painlessly and permanently. This
book removes the psychological need to drink. Regain control of your life."
