About this title

Synopsis:

An appreciative examination of the New England clambake, Neustadt divides her study into three parts: historical (social, economic, political, regional, and cultural) influences on the clambake; a close focus on the Allen's Neck clambake as a cultural phenomena in its own right; and a critical examination of the central elements of the clambaking tradition--food, ritual, and festival.

The author views the clambake as a unique American folk tradition with interesting connections and rich resonances with other aspects of American culture and history.

From the Back Cover:

Both a loving celebration of an annual community event, the century-old Allen's neck clambake, and an insightful examination of how public rituals like it help people define who they are.
