Interesting collection. 27 octobre 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Food and culture are examined in 28 essays by noted anthropologists and other social scientists in this uneven but valuable survey.
Reading some of the academese is like treading molasses, but the collection is redeemed by such gems as Brumberg's examination of the Victorian roots of anorexia nervosa, Sobo's study of the social meanings of obesity in Jamaica, and Harris' "The Abominable Pig". Other writers explore such issues as breast-feeding, "industrial food", and hunger.

Very interesting and worthwhile for those interested in the deeper meanings of food and eating.

Very solid contribution! 30 octobre 2002
Par Quickhappy - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Rarely does one edited volume do such a good job of covering the essential essays about a topic. Counihan and Van Esterik do just that in their well-wrought _Food and Culture_. They skillfully offer food in an anthropological and historical perspective, giving attention to feminist, structuralist, semiotic, and other approaches. The essays themselves are effectively trimmed down by the editors, and the resulting book is consistently rewarding.
The book is weak on vegetarianism, meat as meaning, post-structuralism, and fast food, and could use a bit of help on "ethnic" uses of food. The addition of Doris Witt, Eric Schlosser, and Judith Farquhar would be helpful. It also lacks Peter Singer's new classic, "The Singer Solution to World Poverty." A second edition with these modifications would be welcome!
This book can rival, supplant, or supplement most any professor's undergraduate reading packet on the anthropology of food. Truly well-done. Probably a staple meal on campuses for years to come.

"Inside view" of book deceiving! 22 avril 2011
Par food justice student - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
BEWARE false advertising! I designed a college course/independent study for myself using this book and several others as the basis for the curriculum. Because the course description and bibliography were due before the book was scheduled to arrive, I used Amazon's "Look Inside" tool to check out the Table of Contents and get specifics on the book. The book arrived today, and the essays contained within it are very much different from the ones listed in the Table of Contents that I viewed. When you view the table of contents via "Look Inside", there is a warning that says: "Just so you know...This view is of the Hardcover edition (1997) from Routledge. The Paperback edition (2007) from Routledge that you originally viewed is the one you'll receive if you click the Add to Cart button at left." What the warning doesn't specify is that the paperback version you will receive actually contains some of the same but mostly many different essays than the ones shown in the "Look Inside." There are many essays I had planned to use in my studies that are not included in the version I received at all. Sorry Amazon, but I'm really disappointed in you on this one. It sounded like the only difference was that I'd be receiving the 2007 paperback version instead of the 1997 hardcover version. If the content of the book is different, I call it false advertising not to inform the customer of that very important detail prior to ordering.

A useful text 13 mars 2000
Par Peter G. Buckley - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I assigned this text almost unseen as a course book because it included so many of the classic essays which one might have ended up xeroxing. The students found the book very useful. I would have liked a more historical focus but that's because of my own training. I will assign the book again.
Well written 15 janvier 2013

Bought this book for a anthropology class and found it to be extremely interesting and informative. It helps that I find the subject matter interesting.
