Editorial Reviews


This is a very appealing, nicely illustrated and well presented introduction to food and eating from the perspective of cultural geography and drawing upon contemporary cultural studies. It is written with verve, contains a splendid mix of examples and anecdotes, and is impressively up-to-date in its command of a copious range of recent sources.... Consuming Geographies is amusing, engaging and readable and is the book I would currently recommend as the most stimulating introduction to the cultural aspects of contemporary food consumption.
The Sociological Review

... perceptive and creative ... David Bell and Gil Valentine address a number of issues currently debated in the scholarly literature, from the formation of personal and collective identities to the construction of space and place. Because they consider these through the everyday practices of eating, the authors are more successful than most in making their insights accessible ... Read this book.

Format: Paperback
Consuming Geographies probably will be one of the best books on how food constructs our social life. Beardsworth and Keil explain th main role of food and identity in different social scenarios. The introduction of the book gives the state of the art if someone is trying to study food and identity. Finally, the bibliography can give good references for those interested in foodways.

I began reading a library version of this book and found myself wanting to highlight/take notes while reading. This book stirs up many interesting ideas of food, the contexts of food and touches on sociological and anthropological standpoints. I was very happy to read it as a summer reading book and was entertained, thoroughly, the entire time.
