Críticas:

The authors thread together a captivating sociological investigation of food [and] provide students with a practical foundation and critical approach upon entering the field. As an introductory text to the sociology of food, this book hits the mark. Rural Sociology "Far ranging in scope and hitting on the essential issues most likely to interest students, this book gives readers plenty to think about. It's well written, clear, has a point of view (sociology matters!), and thoroughly integrates social science concepts with the meaning of food in people's lives. An excellent introduction to courses in food studies, food and society, and food and culture." Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, New York University, and co-author, most recently, of Why Calories Count: From Science to Politics "Guptill, Copelton, and Lucal have written a fine introduction both to contemporary food system politics, and to the sociological thinking necessary to change it. With examples that run from competitive eating, to 'food porn,' to a terrific discussion of the political economy of restaurants, this is a lively and engaging undergraduate textbook." Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved: From Farm to Fork, The Hidden Battle for the World Food System "This book is a clear and appealing introduction to the sociological study of food. It will serve as a useful text in undergraduate courses due to its intriguing case studies and articulate delineation of key issues in contemporary foodways." Carole Counihan, Millersville University, and co-editor of Food and Culture: A Reader
