For anyone who has wondered just what food means to Americans, this volume is indispensable. Carole M. Counihan has compiled an important collection of articles that explores American food in all its diversity and examines its larger meanings in U.S. society and beyond. Both those who decry and those who celebrate American foodways will find much of value in this volume, which convincingly demonstrates the importance of food studies to any understanding of national culture.
