Food Additive User's Handbook

Food Additive User's Handbook

Author: James Smith Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/08/2013

The aim of this book is to present technical information about the additives used in food product deveiopment, in a concise form. Food product development is an activity which requires application of technical skills and the use of a diverse range of information. Normally this information is scattered throughout the vast food science literature in journals and books and in technical publications from the various suppliers. It has been my experience, through consulting with the food industry, that there is a need for information on food additives in a quick-to-use form-in tables and figures where possible. Time wasted during information retrieval causes delay in practical development work, which results in delay of product launch and possibly the loss of market advantage. This handbook will be used by food product development staff and by all food scientists requiring access to information on food additives in a quick-to-use format. Some knowledge of food science is assumed. Each chapter contains a bibliography which can be consulted if further informa tion is required. Local legislation will have to be consulted to determine the legality of use of the additive, in which foods and at what level of addition. Information on safety can be found in Food Additives Handbook (1989) by' R.l. Lewis, published by Van Nostrand Reinhold, New York.

British Writers and MI5 Surveillance, 1930-1960

British Writers and MI5 Surveillance, 1930-1960

Author: James Smith Format: Hardback Release Date: 17/12/2012

Britain's domestic intelligence agencies maintained secret records on many left-wing writers after the First World War. Drawing on recently declassified material from 1930 to 1960, this revealing study examines how leading figures in Britain's literary scene fell under MI5 and Special Branch surveillance, and the surprising extent to which writers became willing participants in the world of covert intelligence and propaganda. Chapters devoted to W. H. Auden and his associates, theatre pioneers Ewan MacColl and Joan Littlewood, George Orwell and others describe methods used by MI5 to gather information through and about the cultural world. The book also investigates how these covert agencies assessed the political influence of such writers, providing scholars and students of twentieth-century British literature with an unprecedented account of clandestine operations in popular culture.

Biotreibstoff

Author: James Smith Format: eBook Release Date: 26/09/2012

Eine Welt, angetrieben durch Bioenergie: wie grun, wie sauber, wie nachhaltig und friedlich? Der Traum ist ausgetraumt. Nuchtern zeigt Smith die dramatischen Folgen des Anbaus und Vertriebs von Biokraftstoffen. Die Idee ist nicht neu: Schon 1925 sprach Henry Ford davon, dass der Jahresertrag eines Kartoffelackers ausreichen wrde, um den fr die Bearbeitung notwendigen Maschinen hundert Jahre Energie zu liefern. Heute soll ein Viertel des weltweiten Energiebedarfs durch Bioenergie gedeckt werden. Fr Entwicklungslnder entstehen damit wirtschaftlich sehr lukrative Mglichkeiten, nicht ohne schwerwiegende Konsequenzen: Agrarnutzflchen werden kologisch verwstet, Kleinbauern ihrer Lebensgrundlagen beraubt, Hunger breitet sich aus. Die Gewinner sind wieder einmal die Grokonzerne. Smith bezeichnet die vermeintlich grne Wende als moderne Form der Kolonisierung, die zu weiterer Verschrfung des globalen Nord- Sd-Konflikts fhrt. Vor allem kritisiert er, dass die weitreichenden politischen Entscheidungen zur Bioenergie auf wissenschaftlich noch unzureichenden Grundlagen getroffen werden. Risiken werden in Kauf genommen und erneut "e;Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit"e; (Jean Ziegler, bis 2008 UN- Sonderberichterstatter) begangen, um weiterhin bedenkenlos dem berkonsum von Energie frnen zu knnen.

Biofuels and the Globalization of Risk

Biofuels and the Globalization of Risk

Author: James Smith Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/11/2010

Biofuels and the Globalization of Risk offers a fresh, compelling analysis of the politics and policies behind the biofuels story, with its technological optimism and often-idealized promises for the future. This essential new critique argues that investment in biofuels may reconfigure risk and responsibility, whereby the global South is encouraged to invest its future in growing biofuel crops, often at the expense of food, in order that the global North may continue its unsustainable energy consumption unabated and guilt-free. Thus, Smith argues, biofuels may constitute the biggest change in North-South relationships since colonialism.
