Wilk and his colleagues draw upon their own international field experience to examine how food systems are changing around the globe. The authors offer a cultural perspective that is mising in other economic and developmental studies, and provide rich ethnographic data on markets, industrial production, and food economies. This new book will appeal to professionals in economic and environmental anthropology: economic development, agricultural economics, consumer behavior, nutritional sciences, environmental sustainability, and globalization studies.For my part, I do not believe that devices like the Bron Mandoline, the Cuisinart, or the pressure cooker should be damned, simply because they are ... doing so are convenience, time saving, reduction in manual labor, and abecoming modern.
