Food and Society: A Sociological Approach

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Jan 1, 1995 - Business & Economics - 264 pages
The importance of food is undeniable. Yet, because it is so close and obvious, we often fail to pay attention to it. In Food and Society: A Sociological Approach, author William C. Whitt attempts to develop a multi-level, multidisciplinary approach to the relationship between food and the larger world.
Organized from the experiences of food consumption through its preparation, distribution, storage and production, this book discusses the role of food in past societies, the basics of nutrition, contemporary issues, including body size, food and culture, food production, world hunger and food innovation.
