Featuring the work of some of the most established scholars in the food studies field, this volume looks at the connections between food, culture, and commerce. The essays in the collection pick at what we eat for all its ideological and political implications, such as "Foodscapes" in Los Angeles, the politics of the California avocado, or the cultural subtext of baby food.

Review:

"""Food Nations is a cornucopia of fascinating information about why we eat what we eat. There is much in this wide-ranging book to stimulate anyone with an interest in the past, the present, and even the future of food."
-Harvey Levenstein, author of "Revolution at the Table
"That food and drink are at the very center of the body politic is dramatically enforced in the revelatory collection of essays, unified by the proposition that food is power and power, food. If anyone can doubt that food is as serious a subject as politics or business, let him read any one of these essays and stay amazed."
-Betty Fussell, author of "My Kitchen Wars
"Food studies is serious business and ""Food Nations is a major contribution to our understanding of the business of food. This meticulously researched book is a most welcome addition to an exciting new field."
-Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, author of "Destination Culture
"Until recently, American consumers have limited their concerns about food to additives and pesticides. But to be truly responsible and healthy consumers, they also need to know something about food business, politics, science, history, aesthetics, and traditions."
-Nancy Ralph, Director, New York Food Museum
"Food keeps scholars honest: clarity is right there on the palate, the plate, and the factory line, and nothing can illustrate better the power of identity, class, and the marketing of nationality better than a pickle, an avocado, a donut, or a tortilla. ""Food Nations treats foods as keys to personal, familial, community, and national identity. Reading the volume's elegant essays makes me hungry for more."
-Merry Issacs White, author of "TheMaterial Child
