"Why We Eat, How We Eat: Contemporary Encounters between Foods and Bodies." Emma-Jayne Abbots and Anna Lavis (eds.). Ashgate. June 2013. --- Why We Eat, How We Eat aims to map new terrain in thinking about the relationships between bodies and food. With the central premise that food is both symbolic and material, the volume explores the intersections of current critical debates regarding how individuals eat and why they eat. This fascinating book would be of interest not only to scholars in the social sciences and humanities interested in critical food studies, but to any reader interested in the social, cultural and political dimensions of food and eating practices, writes Deborah Lupton.
