Food and Globalization Summary


Food and Globalization: Consumption, Markets and Politics in the Modern World by Alexander Nuetzenadel

Food has a special significance in the expanding field of global history. Food markets were the first to become globally integrated, linking distant cultures of the world, and in no other area have the interactions between global exchange and local cultural practices been as pronounced as in changing food cultures. In this wide-ranging and fascinating book, the authors provide an historical overview of the relationship between food and globalization in the modern world. Together, the chapters of this book provide a fresh perspective on both global history and food studies. As such, this book will be of interest to a wide range of students and scholars of history, food studies, sociology, anthropology and globalization.

Food and Globalization Reviews


It uses an historical approach in a way designed to appeal to both historians and non-historians alike. The Geographical Journal This volume is a welcome one since it locates the debate within a colonial historical frame and shows how many current themes are indeed long-standing ones. This is a useful book for anyone interested in food policy. It is also of value for those involved in public health nutrition since it shows how cultural and political economic change has influenced what we, as global citizens, eat.
