Inhalt:
Dieting and overeating go hand-in-hand; food scares and the incidence of coronary heart disease have made a healthier diet the explicit goal of government policy; and the range of foods and the ways of eating seem intimately connected to our lifestyles. This is the age of biotechnology, huge supermarkets, all-yearround exotic fruits and vegetables, fast food and ethnic restaurants, and the microwave. Here, the authors argue that in order to comprehend these extensive, dramatic and crucially important developments in the world of food, a new interdisciplinary approach is necessary. Consumption in the Age of Affluence successfully addresses food consumption in this way. The volume:

• argues for the importance of socioeconomic and cultural factors over diet, in influencing the production, marketing and consumption of different groups of foods;
• places food systems theory on sound analytical foundations;
• draws critically upon food systems literature;
• includes case studies from the sugar, dairy and meat systems;
• employs novel statistical techniques to identify and explain distinct patterns of food consumption.

The book is a valuable and path-breaking addition to the revitalized discipline of food studies and points the way forward for the continuing study of food consumption. As such, it will be invaluable to students, researchers and policy-makers engaged in the world of food.
