Reviews

"The second edition of Food & Society builds on the considerable strengths of its predecessor to compass a lively, accessible, and engaging journey through how and why we eat the ways we do. Its classroom exercises and supplementary reading suggestions help it earn its place as an anchor text for undergraduate introductions to the food system." - Raj Patel, The University of Texas at Austin

"Food & Society gives us a fascinating introduction to the issues in food studies of greatest current concern. This exceptionally well-researched book explains why food matters so much and why it generates such intense controversy. The book may be aimed at students, but anyone interested in food issues will have much to learn from the paradoxes it presents." - Marion Nestle, New York University and author Soda Politics: Taking on Big Soda (and Winning)
