The cultural politics of food and eating : a reader / edited by James L. Watson and Melissa L. Caldwell.
Malden, MA : Blackwell Pub., 2005.
Blackwell readers in anthropology ; 8
Includes bibliographical references and index.
Rather than replicating an anthology of classic writings on food or the anthropology of food, this title addresses the study of food in relation to larger themes that are emerging in social anthropology: globalization, capitalism, 'new' market economies, and consumption practices.
