About this book

Provides a social science perspective on food systems and demonstrates the rich variety of disciplinary and theoretical contexts of food studies.

Well written, well illustrated with useful graphs and maps; statements are supported by facts, well presented in numerous tables. -- Area, Vol. 34 20020801 A very good book...its wide range of very brief chapters keeps the reader constantly challenged. Given the wealth of information this is definitely one for the library shelf. -- TEG News (British Ecological Society) Australia An extremely ambitious book, full of references from various areas of food studies, ranging from geography and anthropology to rural sociology and agricultural economics. An invaluable resource that should help those in food studies beyond geography understand how geographers think about food, and help geographers and geography students understand the various perspectives on food within their field. -- Gastronomica
