View the Table of Contents .nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Read the Introduction . "Anderson's view of the relationship between the biological and the cultural is nicely provocative, and his rich personal fieldwork experiences greatly enliven the pages ofEveryone Eats." Sidney W. Mintz, author ofTasting Food, Tasting Freedom: Excursions into Eating, Culture, and the Past "Everyone Eatsis anthropology at its best, an exceptional blend of biological and cultural explanation that reveals our relationship with food and eating. Anderson's personal ethnographic experience as a nutritional anthropologist among cultures from around the world will leave the reader with a sense of wonderment about the fundamental human act of eating. Throughout the book Anderson develops a deep social conscience about the problems of over--and under-nutrition--that face the world today." Barrett P. Brenton, Associate Editor ofThe Encyclopedia of Food and Culture "Although intended for the general public and not as a textbook, this book is recommended for higher education, especially advanced courses." CHOICE,highly recommended Everyone eats, but rarely do we ask why or investigate why we eat what we eat. Why do we love spices, sweets, coffee? How did rice become such a staple food throughout so much of eastern Asia?Everyone Eatsexamines the social and cultural reasons for our food choices and provides an explanation of the nutritional reasons for why humans eat, resulting in a unique cultural and biological approach to the topic. E. N. Anderson explains the economics of food in the globalization era, food's relationship to religion, medicine, and ethnicity as well as offers suggestions on how to end hunger, starvation, and malnutrition. Everyone Eatsfeeds our need to understand human ecology by explaining the ways that cultures and political systems structure the edible environment.
