Reviews

“This volume is both an appreciation of Jack Goody’s ground-breaking studies on social class and food, and an extension into spaces and systems unexamined in his work. … Highly recommended, this unusually well-integrated volume offers academic researchers, students, and general readers a rich collection of data and thoughtful analysis, while both celebrating a great scholar and providing new territory for exploration.” (Merry I. White, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, Vol. 23 (3), September, 2017)
