Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is a solid little book that does an admirable job of incorporating a good deal of recent scholarship on food and foodways in a succinct and accessible fashion ... Food in World History is a welcome addition to the literature on early modern and modern food history, both for its conciseness and its solidly global approach.' - Eric R. Dursteler, Brigham Young University in Canadian Journal of History, spring-summer 2008

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I admire Pilcher's work. He is a good, original scholar. But this seems to be a hastily prepared book for a market that desparately needs a panoramic text on this subject. Unfortunately this is just too light in the coverage. I don't get the sense of real exploration of the subject that characterizes his work on Mexico. I was hoping this might serve as a course text but there's not enough meat.
