This series focuses on food culture as a way to illuminate the socie-
tal mores and daily life of Americans throughout our history. These
volumes are meant to complement history studies at the high school
level on up. In addition, Food Studies is a burgeoning field, and food
enthusiasts and food scholars will find much to mine here. The series
is comprehensive, with the first volume covering American Indian
food and the following volumes each covering an era or eras from
Colonial times until today. Regional and group differences are dis-
cussed as appropriate....
The old civilisation of India was a concrete unity of many-sided developments in art, architecture, literature,
religion, morals, and science so far as it was understood in those days. But the most important achievement of
Indian thought was philosophy. It was regarded as the goal of all the highest practical and theoretical
activities, and it indicated the point of unity amidst all the apparent diversities which the complex growth of
culture over a vast area inhabited by different peoples produced.
A signal transaction is now taking place in the course of Indian polity. These speeches, with no rhetorical pretensions, contain some of the just, prudent, and necessary points and considerations, that have guided this transaction, and helped to secure for it the sanction of Parliament. The too limited public that follows Indian affairs with coherent attention, may find this small sheaf of speeches, revised as they have been, to be of passing use. Three cardinal State-papers have been appended.
For decades, South Africans aspiring to make the perfect biryani have turned to Indian Delights, the best selling cookbook produced by Zuleikha Mayat and the Women´s Cultural Group. This is the story of the women behind the recipes; it is an account that brings to life the changing, gendered worlds of Muslim women in 20th century Durban.
The earliest knowledge of the existence of the sedentary Indians in New Mexico and Arizona reached Europe by way of Mexico proper; but it is very doubtful whether or not the aborigines of Mexico had any positiveinformation to impart about countries lying north of the present State of Querétaro. The tribes to the north were, in the language of the valley-confederates, "Chichimecas,"—a word yet undefined, but apparently synonymous, in the conceptions of the "Nahuatl"-speaking natives, with fierce savagery, and ultimately adopted by them as a warlike title.
The conquest of Canada was an event of momentous consequence in American history. It changed the
political aspect of the continent, prepared a way for the independence of the British colonies, rescued the vast
tracts of the interior from the rule of military despotism, and gave them, eventually, to the keeping of an
ordered democracy. Yet to the red natives of the soil its results were wholly disastrous. Could the French have
maintained their ground, the ruin of the Indian tribes might long have been postponed; but the victory of
Quebec was the signal of their swift decline.
In all ages, from the remotest antiquity, the story-teller has flourished. Evidences of his existence are to
be found among the most ancient monuments and writings in the Orient. In Egypt, Nineveh, Babylon,
and other ancient lands he flourished, and in the homes of the noblest he was ever an honored guest.
The oldest collection of folklore stories or myths now in existence is of East Indian origin and is
preserved in the Sanskrit. The collection is called Hitopadesa, and the author was Veshnoo Sarma.
We all know how the native Americans found here by the whites at their first arrival, came to be called
Indians. Columbus did not realize the greatness of his discovery. He was seeking a route to Asia and supposed
that he had found it. Believing that he had really reached the Indies, for which he was looking, it was natural
that the people here should be called Indians.
The American Indians are often classed as a single type. They are described as being of a coppery or
In view of the fact that the present paper will doubtless reach many readers who may not, in consequence of
the limited edition, have seen the preliminary volume on mortuary customs, it seems expedient to reproduce
in great part the prefatory remarks which served as an introduction to that work; for the reasons then urged,
for the immediate study of this subject, still exist, and as time flies on become more and more important.
The primitive manners and customs of the North American Indians are rapidly passing away under influences
of civilization and other disturbing elements.
Philip, ruler of the Wampanoags, was the only Indian in our country to whom the English colonists gave the
title of king. Why no other Indian ever received this title I cannot tell, neither is it known how it happened to
be given to Philip.
The Wampanoags were a tribe of Indians whose homes were in what is now southeastern Massachusetts and
in Rhode Island east of Narragansett Bay. A few of them, also, lived on the large islands farther south,
Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.
The establishment of Fort Howe rendered the situation of the people at the mouth of the St. John comparatively secure, but the following summer was a very anxious and trying time to those who lived in the townships up the river. The Indians were restless and dissatisfied. They complained bitterly of being left without a missionary, and it was in vain that Lieut. Gov. Arbuthnot and Colonel Franklin endeavored to keep them in good temper by promising that a missionary would be sent them immediately. Most of the settlers in the townships were natives of New England, and the...
I have now been in India for over two years and a half after my return from South Africa. Over one quarter of that time I have passed on the Indian trains travelling third class by choice. I have travelled up north as far as Lahore, down south up to Tranquebar, and from Karachi to Calcutta. Having resorted to third class travelling, among other reasons, for the purpose of studying the conditions under which this class of passengers travel, I have naturally made as critical observations as I could. I have fairly covered the majority of railway systems during...

On my second day in the US, I realized that I would have to prepare my favorite cuisine in very
different circumstances. As an Indian housewife in America, I was working with a new set of
advantages and disadvantages. It was a challenge.
Gradually I learnt that the Western supermarket offers all the necessary products, if you know
where to look for them. The solution lies in making the most out of all the products the Western
grocery store has to offer, and knowing what to do and what not to do with them to come up with
a great meal (in 30 minutes or less)!...
Ký sự thổ dân Amazon
Khi Columbus tìm ra Tân thế giới, ông đã gọi những cư dân ở đó là người Indian (người Ấn Độ), bởi ông cứ đinh ninh rằng mình đã tới miền Đông Ấn. Ngày nay, ở vùng Amazon, người ta vẫn gọi thổ dân là người Indian, tiếng Việt gọi là người Anhđiêng.
