Uncommon grounds : the history of coffee and how it transformed our world by Mark Pendergrast( Book )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 2,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Coffee has been banned as a creator of revolutionary sedition, vilified as the worst health-destroyer on earth and praised as the boon of mankind. Its history provides a window through which to view broader themes of colonialism and culture clash, the rise of mass production, modern-day media and marketing, women's issues and international commodity schemes. It also illustrates how an entire industry can lose focus, allowing upstart micro-roasters to reclaim quality and profits." "Mark Pendergrast enlivens his scrupulously researched history with anecdotes, eccentric characters and period commentary that will give readers stories to share - over good cups of coffee - for years to come."--Jacket

Beyond fair trade : how one small coffee company helped transform a hillside village in Thailand by Mark Pendergrast( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Akha hill Tribe of Thailand has a long, tumultuous history. Politics, economics, and land development consistently worked against the Akha's desire to move away from their dependency on opium production and create a stable future for their children. That all changed in 2006 when prominent businessman John Darch met with entrepreneur Wicha Promyong. Their meeting resulted in the establishment of an equal partnership business venture that goes beyond fair trade: the Doi Chaang Coffee Company. Beyond Fair Trade tells the story of the growth of this unique partnership, its successes and challenges, and the people behind it."--

City on the verge : Atlanta and the fight for America's urban future by Mark Pendergrast( Book )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atlanta is on the verge of tremendous rebirth-or inexorable decline. A kind of Petri dish for cities struggling to reinvent themselves, Atlanta has the highest income inequality in the country, gridlocked highways, suburban sprawl, and a history of racial injustice. Yet it is also an energetic, brash young city that prides itself on pragmatic solutions. Today, the most promising catalyst for the city's rebirth is the BeltLine, which the New York Times described as "a staggeringly ambitious engine of urban revitalization." A long-term project that is cutting through forty-five neighborhoods ranging from affluent to impoverished, the BeltLine will complete a twenty-two-mile loop encircling downtown, transforming a massive ring of mostly defunct railways into a series of stunning parks connected by trails and streetcars. Acclaimed author Mark Pendergrast presents a deeply researched, multi-faceted, up-to-the-minute history of the biggest city in America's Southeast, using the BeltLine saga to explore issues of race, education, public health, transportation, business, philanthropy, urban planning, religion, politics, and community. An inspiring narrative of ordinary Americans taking charge of their local communities, City of the Verge provides a model for how cities across the country can reinvent themselves
Kaffee : wie eine Bohne die Welt veränderte by Mark Pendergrast( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in German and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kaffee ist heute neben Tabak und Alkohol das wichtigste Genussmittel unseres Kulturkreises. Doch Kaffee war immer auch mehr als das. Seit seiner Entdeckung durch einen äthiopischen Ziegenhirten hat Kaffee die wirtschaftlichen, politischen und sozialen Strukturen ganzer Länder entscheidend beeinflusst. Die weltweite Kaffeekultur ist mehr als eine Kultur - sie ist ein Kult. Gut drei Jahre lang hat der amerikanische Autor Mark Pendergrast für dieses Buch recherchiert - unter anderem als Kaffeepflücker in Guatemala. Auf der Grundlage einer Vielzahl von Bildquellen, Interviews und Firmenporträts liefert er nun eine Kaffee-Saga, die dem Leser erstmalig einen umfassenden Überblick über die Erfolgsgeschichte der braunen Bohne entfaltet. Er verfolgt ihren alles andere als geradlinigen Weg von den Anfängen in der islamischen Kulturwelt über die Kaffeehäuser Europas, die Kaffeeplantagen Lateinamerikas bis zur trendigen Kaffeebar-Kette Starbucks, die im Verlauf der letzten Jahre zu einem festen Bestandteil der amerikanischen Alltagskultur geworden ist. Als Wirtschaftsjournalist fokussiert Pendergrast vor allem die politischen und ökonomischen Entwicklungen, die dazu geführt haben, dass heute weltweit etwa 25 Millionen Menschen in über 70 Ländern mit der Produktion, Verarbeitung und dem Vertrieb von Kaffee beschäftigt sind. Dabei spart er nicht an Anekdoten, bleibt aber immer an der Sache - mit manchmal liebevollem, aber immer kritischem Blick. Entstanden ist eine ebenso informative wie unterhaltsame Kulturgeschichte der Kaffeebohne, nicht nur für Insider des Kaffeegeschäfts. (Quelle: www.books.ch)
