There are not many areas that are more rooted in both the biological and social-cultural aspects of humankind than diet and nutrition. Throughout human history nutrition has been shaped by political, economic, and cultural forces, and in turn, access to food and nutrition has altered the course and direction of human societies. Using a biocultural approach, the contributors to this volume investigate the ways in which food is both an essential resource fundamental to human health and an expression of human culture and society. The chapters deal with aspects of diet and human nutrition through space and time and span prehistoric, historic, and contemporary societies spread over various geographical regions, including Europe, North America, Africa, and Asia to highlight how biology and culture are inextricably linked.

About the Author:

Tina Moffat is Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at McMaster University. Her research focuses on child health and nutrition in relation to environmental health and urban ecosystems. She has authored and co-authored numerous scholarly journal publications on child growth and infant feeding in Nepal and nutritional well-being and obesity among North American school-children.

Review:

The editors provide a nice integration of the book material in the conclusion. While the individual chapters do not, for the most part, provide examples of integrative biocultural approaches, the editors skilfully weave them together thematically and in relation to current issues in the conclusion...the book provides a nice sampling of the spectrum of data and approaches that constitute the field, and as such would be useful for a class in nutritional anthropology.  ·  JRAI

The individual chapters presented in the volume are well written and together detail a broad range of methodological approaches to the topics around which the volume is structured...This edited volume would be of particular interest to advanced graduate students or researchers interested in the specific topics covered by each chapter.”  ·  Medical Anthropology Quarterly

 

"This is a high-quality publication. Many of the chapters are excellent reviews of methods and perspectives in their particular area. The editors have clearly done a good job... There is a strong mix of topics that go well together and are tied together by the first and last chapters."  ·  Alan Goodman, Hampshire College
