About this product
- DescriptionIn the modern age (1920-2000), vast techlogical invation spurred greater concentration, standardization, and globalization of the food supply. As advances in agricultural production in the post-World War II era propelled population growth, a significant portion of the population gained access to cheap, industrially produced food while significant numbers remained mired in hunger and malnutrition. Further, as globalization allowed unprecedented access to foods from all parts of the globe, it also hastened environmental degradation, contributed to poor health, and remained a key
element in global politics, ecomics and culture.
A Cultural History of Food in the Modern Age presents an overview of the period with essays on food production, food systems, food security, safety and crises, food and politics, eating out, professional cooking, kitchens and service work, family and domesticity, body and soul, representations of food, and developments in food production and consumption globally.
- Author BiographyAmy Bentley is Associate Professor of Food Studies in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health at New York University, USA and author of Eating for Victory: Food Rationing and the Politics of Domesticity.
