Killed my interest...

To me, this book screams "graduate thesis". I found that it was very unnecessarily long winded. I've read work from much more brilliant minds (Aristotle, Shakespeare, Socrates, John Locke) that was less convoluted than this book. It's not the subject matter in this book that's difficult, it's simply the way it's written. There are so many quotes in every paragraph that I can barely tell if the authors have an opinion at all or if they're just simply trying to regurgitate things other people have said about the topics. Often I felt like the authors were getting lost and caught in loops trying to explain a subject matter which made for long and repetitive paragraphs that could be easily summarized into one or two sentences. There is actually some good statistical information in this book, and it covers a wide variety of food topics. All in all, if you're serious about investigating sociology of food nutrition, I would not recommend this book. Certainly, it has "content" and lots of it, but I felt it was lacking "substance".

I was happy to be able to source the text (which was required reading for my course) for $40 cheaper that the university bookshop. This saving was even after paying standard international delivery.

I bought this as it is a text for college, not necessary but provides good reading and background knowledge. I do not regret buying it.

This book contains a series of essays on the politics and sociology of food. Although it's a collection of essays by different authors, it's presented as a textbook, complete with a list of vocabulary words and discussion questions for each essay. A few of the articles are comprehensive review articles covering aspects of food and nutrition, such as eating out in England (Alan Warde & Lydia Martens), food and class (Pat Crotty), nutrition guidance for recent immigrants (Joanne Ikeda), and food and aging (Wm McIntosh & Karen Kubena). One article reports original research on women's impressions of their bodies during pregnancy (Lauren Williams & Jane Potter). Most of the remaining articles argue for a particular (politically correct) view of nutrition, food supplies, and obesity. (For example, the article on world hunger, which starts the book off, argues for neo-Marxist solutions to world hunger, yet overlooks the major role that armed conflicts play in causing famines.) The editors of the book are Australian, so it is not surprising that the majority of articles discuss questions that focus on Australian society, although some of the chapter discuss British society, and a few describe the US. This book could be used as a text for upper-level undergraduate courses (if you are determined to teach left-wing politics together with nutrition), but it probably wouldn't be a great choice for US campuses because of the Australian focus. On the other hand, the core review articles listed above would make great reading anywhere.
