How The West Was Won | Slate Star Codex
-- Without an historian's critical approval, this speculation is as good as others... I have no idea whether this well written post is correct.

Jordan Peterson & Fascist Mysticism | by Pankaj Mishra | NYR Daily | The New York Review of Books
-- Mishra knows how to insult with style. He hates western intellectuals and elites and has fun *roasting* Peterson.

But the more I read Mishra, the more I get a feeling that he overfits his post-colonial narratives. Someone should start a new field of empirically driven post-colonial studies. Maybe there is one already and I just don't know about it.

God’s Oppressed Children | by Pankaj Mishra | The New York Review of Books
As always, Mishra's review is informative and incisive; a great read and even better for the things I disagree with:)

I was half expecting an intersectional analysis of the Indian caste system but realized that the post-colonial thinkers back home may not have been marinating in that long enough. Interesting to see Indian post-colonial thought evolve over the years enough to begin criticizing Marxism and socialism.

Kick Against the Pricks | by Laura Kipnis | The New York Review of Books
-- craftily written, it is the things that she leads the reader into but never says; the closest any piece has come to addressing moral agency.

Cuisine and Empire - Rachel Laudan - Hardcover - University of California Press
Rachel Laudan tells the remarkable story of the rise and fall of the world’s great cuisines—from the mastery of grain cooking some twenty thousand years ago, to the present—in this superbly researched book. Probing beneath the apparent confusion of dozens of cuisines to reveal the underlying simplicity of the culinary family tree, she shows how periodic seismic shifts in “culinary philosophy”—beliefs about health, the economy, politics, society and the gods—prompted the construction of new cuisines, a handful of which, chosen as the cuisines of empires, came to dominate the globe.

Cuisine and Empire shows how merchants, missionaries, and the military took cuisines over mountains, oceans, deserts, and across political frontiers. Laudan’s innovative narrative treats cuisine, like language, clothing, or architecture, as something constructed by humans. By emphasizing how cooking turns farm products into food and by taking the globe rather than the nation as the stage, she challenges the agrarian, romantic, and nationalistic myths that underlie the contemporary food movement.
