Forrest Gump stepped out of the pages of Winston Groom's novel, up onto the silver screen, and into the hearts of more than
30 million Americans. If you're lucky, you count yourself among them. Now you can open to any page... and just like Forrest's
mama said about life... "You never know what you're gonna get." There are shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo,
shrimp cocktail... over 75 recipes all told, and every mouth-watering one of them heaven-sent. And speaking of heaven, Forrest
wanted to remember his mama with these recipes, and his best friend, Bubba, too. And he didn't want Li'l Forrest to grow up
without knowing the Gump family shrimp secrets. These recipes are so downright delicious, you'll know that "miracles
do happen every day." Forrest Gump has never been a man to complicate things... he's a simple man, but one who "knows
what love is." Try some of the shrimp recipes in this book, and you'll know what he means. Forrest's mama loved the South,
and its magazine, Southern Living. "They just have a way with food," she used to say. Try these shrimp fixings,
all tested in the Southern Living kitchens, and you'll say his mama was right every time. Even if the President of the United
States knocks on your door, you'll have the very thing to put on his plate. Tell him Forrest Gump said to say hello... and
to remember his own mama.
With the collapse of communism, a new world seemed to open for the peoples of East Central Europe. The possibilities this
world presented, and the costs it exacted, have been experienced differently by men and women. Susan Gal and Gail Kligman
explore these differences through a probing analysis of the role of gender in reshaping politics and social relations since
1989.The authors raise two crucial questions: How are gender relations and ideas about gender shaping political and economic
change in the region? And what forms of gender inequality are emerging as a result? The book provides a rich understanding
of gender relations and their significance in social and institutional transformations. Gal and Kligman offer a systematic
comparison of East Central European gender relations with those of western welfare states, and with the presocialist, bourgeois
past. Throughout this essay, the authors attend to historical comparisons as well as cross regional interactions and contrasts.
Their work contributes importantly to the study of postsocialism, and to the broader feminist literature that critically examines
how states and political-economic processes are gendered, and how states and markets regulate gender relations.
