In keeping with our mission to publish the best books on the politics AND practice of sustainable living, we’re proud to present three excellent — and very different — new books!

The Art of Fermentation: An In-Depth Exploration of Essential Concepts and Processes from Around the World [1] by Sandor Ellix Katz

We can confidently say that this is the most comprehensive guide to do-it-yourself home fermentation ever published. Sandor Katz presents the concepts and processes behind fermentation in ways that are simple enough to guide a reader through their first experience making sauerkraut or yogurt, and in-depth enough to provide greater understanding and insight for experienced practitioners. While Katz expertly contextualizes fermentation in terms of biological and cultural evolution, health and nutrition, and even economics, this is primarily a compendium of practical information—how the processes work; parameters for safety; techniques for effective preservation; troubleshooting; and more.

Read Michael Pollan’s enthusiastic and inspired Foreword.  [2]

The New Feminist Agenda: Defining the Next Revolution for Women, Work, and Family [3] by Madeleine M. Kunin

Feminists opened up thousands of doors in the 1960s and 1970s, but decades later, are U.S. women where they thought they’d be?  The answer, it turns out, is a resounding no. Looking back over five decades of advocacy, Madeleine Kunin (Vermont’s first female governor and the nation’s third) analyzes where progress stalled, looks at the successes of other countries, and charts the course for the next feminist revolution—one that mobilizes women, and men, to call for the kind of government and workplace policies that can improve the lives of women and strengthen their families.

The Natural Building Companion: A Comprehensive Guide to Integrative Design and Construction [7] by Jacob Deva Racusin and Ace McArleton. This book is the first in our Yestermorrow Design/Build Series, and comes with an instructional DVD.

Natural buildings not only bring satisfaction to their makers and joy to their occupants, they also leave the gentlest footprint on the environment. In this complete reference to natural building philosophy, design, and technique, Jacob Deva Racusin and Ace McArleton walk builders through planning and construction, offering step-by-step instructions on siting, choosing materials, planning for heat and moisture, developing an integrative design, and so much more.
