Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the most interesting and informative indexes into the nature of American culture, this book opens the eyes to the pages of American cultural history which are often taken for granted: we are what we eat but we often don't try to understand why we eat what we eat....The book should be on the table of every one interested in food--gastronomically or educationally! Bon appetit!"--"Journal of American Culture"

Among his books are Paradox of Plenty: A Social History of Eating in Modern America, Revised Edition (California, 2003), Seductive Journey: American Tourists in France from the Jefferson to the Jazz Age (1998), and Communism, Anticommunism and the CIO (1981).

This book has a lot of hard work and research behind it, and although I found a few inaccuracies from my own interest in the subject, I would generally call this a wonderful exploration of how the typical American eater changed from a constipated beef- and carb-snarfer who was suspicious about vegetables to a nervous eater who indulges in pseudo-science and obsesses about 100 calorie snack packs. ::sigh:: Anyway, I do recommend it; there were a lot of quirks in the history that surprised me, especially the excellent chapter on baby formula.

Good book, well researched. It contains the most in-depth history of the Boston Cooking School that I have found.
