From the Publisher'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.'
