"Martha Rose Shulman's The Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking is an accessible, delicious-recipe-packed teaching book designed to give home cooks a plan ("templates") and a language for cooking mouthwatering plant-based meals every day.

By having these basic templates in hand, readers--wherever they live and whatever the season--will be able to prepare meatless dishes simply and easily, making this plan ideal for busy families, working moms, and anyone who wants to be able to put a mouthwatering vegetarian dish on the table, angst-free.Template cooking--providing a reliable, sensible framework for dishes that can change fluidly with seasonal availability--is enjoying rising popularity in the food world, and Shulman is a Rodale house author and legend. Whether the reader is a working parent trying to decipher the overflowing CSA box or a new vegetarian trying to navigate a world where meals can't be summed up as "steak," "chicken," or "pork chops," The Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking, with 125 recipes, is the perfect tool"--

What is money? Where does it come from? Who makes our money today? And how can we understand the current state of our economy as a crisis of money itself? In Making Money, Ole Bjerg turns these questions into a matter of philosophical rather than economic analysis. Using the thinking of Slavoj ?i?ek, while still engaging with mainstream economic literature, the book provides a genuinely philosophical theory of money. This theory is unfolded in reflections on the nature of monetary phenomenon such as financial markets, banks, debt, credit, derivatives, gold, risk, value, price, interests, and arbitrage. The analysis of money is put into an historical context by suggesting that the current financial turbulence and debt crisis are symptoms that we live in the age of post-credit capitalism. By bridging the fields of economics and contemporary philosophy, Bjerg's work engages in a productive form of intellectual arbitrage.
