Reviews

"Zeide's account goes well beyond canned food to include many other aspects of the larger food system and consumer activism more generally . . . She uses a wide range of primary and secondary sources, and demonstrates familiarity with a broad literature on the history of food and consumption. In this way, the book speaks to an interdisciplinary audience with ease."--American Historical Review
"Zeide's thoroughly researched, comprehensive history is a necessary addition to the collections of policy-makers, activists, and anyone interested in reforming the modern food system of the United States."--Environmental History
"An insightful and multifaceted investigation. . . . A rare find--an academic book that is genuinely entertaining to read."--Gastronomica
