By Alicia Elliott. 2019
In an urgent and visceral work that asks essential questions about Native people in North America while drawing on intimate… details of her own life and experience with intergenerational trauma, Alicia Elliott offers indispensable insight and understanding to the ongoing legacy of colonialism. What are the links between depression, colonialism and loss of language--both figurative and literal? How does white privilege operate in different contexts? How do we navigate the painful contours of mental illness in loved ones without turning them into their sickness? How does colonialism operate on the level of literary criticism? A Mind Spread Out on the Ground is Alicia Elliott's attempt to answer these questions and more. In the process, she engages with such wide-ranging topics as race, parenthood, sexuality, love, mental illness, poverty, sexual assault, gentrification, writing and representation. Elliott makes connections both large and small between the past and present, the personal and political--from overcoming a years-long history with head lice to the way Native writers are treated within the Canadian literary industry; her unplanned teenage pregnancy to the history of dark matter and how it relates to racism in the court system; her childhood diet of Kraft dinner to how systematic oppression is linked to depression in Native communities. With deep consideration and searing prose, Elliott extends far beyond her own experiences to provide a candid look at our past, an illuminating portrait of our present and a powerful tool for a better future. Bestseller. 2019.

By Mark Schatzker. 2015
A lively and important argument from an award-winning journalist proving that the key to reversing America s health crisis lies… in the overlooked link between nutrition and flavor In The Dorito Effect Mark Schatzker shows us how our approach to the nation s number one public health crisis has gotten it wrong The epidemics of obesity heart disease and diabetes are not tied to the overabundance of fat or carbs or any other specific nutrient Instead we have been led astray by the growing divide between flavor--the tastes we crave--and the underlying nutrition Since the late 1940s we have been slowly leeching flavor out of the food we grow Those perfectly round red tomatoes that grace our supermarket aisles today are mostly water and the big breasted chickens on our dinner plates grow three times faster than they used to leaving them dry and tasteless Simultaneously we have taken great leaps forward in technology allowing us to produce in the lab the very flavors that are being lost on the farm Thanks to this largely invisible epidemic seemingly healthy food is becoming more like junk food highly craveable but nutritionally empty We have unknowingly interfered with an ancient chemical language--flavor--that evolved to guide our nutrition not destroy it With in-depth historical and scientific research The Dorito Effect casts the food crisis in a fascinating new light weaving an enthralling tale of how we got to this point and where we are headed We ve been telling ourselves that our addiction to flavor is the problem but it is actually the solution We are on the cusp of a new revolution in agriculture that will allow us to eat healthier and live longer by enjoying flavor the way nature intended

Disparity and division in religion, technology and ideology have characterized relations between English-Canadian and Indian cultures through-out Canada's history. From… the earliest declaration of white territorial ownership to the current debate on aboriginal rights, red man and white man have had opposing principles and perspectives. The most common 'solutions' imposed on these conflicts by white men have relegated the Indian to the fringes of white society and consciousness. This survey of English-Canadian literature is the first comprehensive examination of a tradition in which white writers turn to the Indian and his culture for standards and models by which they can measure their own values and goals; for patterns of cultural destruction, transformation, and survival; and for sources of native heroes and indigenous myths. Leslie Monkman examines images of the Indian as they appear in works raning from Robert Rogers' Ponteach, or The Savages of America (1766) to Robertson Davies' 'Pontiac and the Green Man' (1977), demonstrating how English-Canadian writers have illuminated their own world through reference to Indian culture. The Indian has been seen as an antagonist, as a superior alternative, as a member of a vanishing and lamented race, and as a hero and the source of the new myths. Although white/Indian tension often lies in apparently irreconcilable opposites, Monkman finds in the literature surveyed complementary images reflecting a common humanity.This is an important contribution to a hitherto unexplored area of Canadian literature in English which should give rise to further elaboration of this major theme.
