Winner of the Society for Economic Anthropology Annual Book Prize 2008.

Belize, a tiny corner of the Caribbean wedged into Central America, has been a fast food nation since buccaneers and pirates first stole ashore. As early as the 1600s it was already caught in the great paradox of globalization: how can you stay local and relish your own home cooking, while tasting the delights of the global marketplace? Menus, recipes and bad colonial poetry combine with Wilk's sharp anthropological insight to give an important new perspective on the perils and problems of globalization.

About the Author:

Richard Wilk is Professor of Anthropology and Gender Studies, Indiana University.

Review:

Home Cooking in the Global Village is an outstanding example of contemporary anthropology. It offers a good balance between ethnographic and historical information. With its compelling presentation on the effects of globalization, this book is ideal for courses on Latin America or the Caribbean. As the book considers the role of food, any course on the anthropology of food would benefit from it as well.” ―Michael R. McDonald, Florida Gulf Coast University
