Weekend reading: Food & Society
Amy E. Guptill, Denise A. Copelton and Betsy Lucal. Food & Society: Principles and Paradoxes, 2nd ed. Polity, 2016.
I did a blurb for this one:
Food & Society gives us a fascinating introduction to the issues in food studies of greatest current concern. From identity to health, marketing, and the externalized costs of food, this exceptionally well researched and written book explains why food matters so much and why it generates such intense controversy. The book may be aimed at students, but anyone interested in food issues will have much to learn from the paradoxes it presents.
