Eating Culture : An Anthropological Guide to Food, Paperback / softback Book

Eating Culture : An Anthropological Guide to Food Paperback / softback


From ingredients and recipes to meals and menus across time and space, this highly engaging overview illustrates the important roles that anthropology and anthropologists play in understanding food and its key place in the study of culture. The new edition, now in full colour, introduces discussions about nomadism, commercializing food, food security, and ethical consumption, including treatment of animals and the long-term environmental and health consequences of meat consumption.

New feature boxes offer case studies and exercises to help highlight anthropological methods and approaches, and each chapter includes a further reading section.

By considering the concept of cuisine and public discourse, Eating Culture brings order and insight to our changing relationship with food.
