Eating Culture

Eating has never been simple, and contemporary eating practices seem more complicated than ever, demanding a multidimensional analysis that strives not for a reductive overview but for a complex understanding. Eating Culture offers a number of diverse outlooks on some of the prominent practices and issues associated with the domain of eating in contemporary culture. Lavishly illustrated with nineteen photographs and eleven historical postcards, the book brings to bear contemporary, interdisciplinary thinking on a topic that has been widely but not critically discussed in the media. Contributors include Carol Adams, Marianna Beck, Susan Bordo, Priscilla Ferguson, Joanne Finkelstein, Dianna Fuss, Deborah R. Geis, bell hooks, David F. Krell, Steven F. Kruger, Alfonso Lingis, Mary Lukanuski, Gary Paul Nabhan, Ed Schiffer, Stephen Steinberg, Jeff Weinstein, Allen S. Weiss, Doris S. Witt, and Sharon Zukin.
