This book on the crafting of chocolate in contemporary France is itself delicious. It will be a classic of French ethnography and contribute in important ways to the ongoing debate about the role of national identity in the European Union."―Carole L. Crumley, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
"A real pathbreaker. The intensity of Terrio's engagement with her respondents shines from almost every page. The work contributes to our understanding of the politics of heritage. . . . It is a thoroughly researched and descriptively rich analysis of how anthropologists can approach weighty problems of identity, national-local relations, and the ideology of self and other."―Michael Herzfeld, author of Portrait of a Greek Imagination
Susan J. Terrio is Associate Professor of French and Anthropology at Georgetown University.
