If you happen to have $540 to spare, or represent a library, please run right out and buy the brand-new “Encyclopedia of Lifestyle Medicine and Health” from SAGE Publications.
It has an excellent article on “Chicken and Poultry” by yours truly. I wrote it almost three years ago. Encyclopedias tend to take a long time to get into print.
This is my second encyclopedia. The first, in 2003, was the “Encyclopedia of Food and Culture” from Scribner. I wrote the article on “Poultry” and eleven others, ranging from “Botulism” to “Military Rations” and “History of Food Production.”
The only trouble with writing for encyclopedias is that they compete with Wikipedia, which pays nothing, so printed encyclopedia don’t pay very much. But it’s a great byline!
