SUMMARY

Food touches everything important to people: it marks social difference and strengthens social bonds. Common to all peoples, it can signify very different things from table to table. Food and Culture takes a global look at the social, symbolic, and political-economic role of food. The stellar contributors to this reader examine some of the meanings of food and eating across cultures, with particular attention to how men and women define themselves differently through their foodways. Crossing many subjects, this innovative, first-of-its-kind in the field includes the perspectives of anthropology, history, psychology, philosophy, politics, and sociology. This is the classic text in the field, updated for the first time in a decade, and hailed as the "bible" in the field. A "must" use for any course on the anthropology or sociology of food.Counihan, Carole is the author of 'Food And Culture ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780415977777 and ISBN 0415977770.
