About the Author
Carol Helstosky is Associate Professor of History at Denver University. Her publications include Food Culture in the Mediterranean (2009), Pizza: A Global History (2008) and Garlic and Oil: Food and Politics in Modern Italy (2004).
'Whether motivated by an interest in history or food, all readers will find much to stimulate their thinking in this book. Carol Helstosky has assembled a collection of essays that reflects how diverse and rich the field of food history has become and establishes it as a research specialisation in its own right that contributes much to the discipline. Focussed on the last 500 years, the collection provides a synthesis of research that charts the direction of the field and reflects the transformation of the world food system within the broader historical context; a valuable resource that will introduce food history to a broad audience and inspire historians to recognise the significance of food for understanding the past and the everyday.'
