Rural Sociology, Sociology of Agriculture And Food - Bibliography
A SOCIOLOGY OF FOOD AND
NUTRITION: THE SOCIAL APPETITE. - Edited by John Germove and Lauren Williams. Victoria,
Australia. - Eating is fundamentally a social activity; therefore, it is curious that
sociologists have only begun to study it in recent years. Perhaps this is because the
study of food and eating necessitates a multidisciplinary approach. The editors of this
book do a fine job of providing a multidisciplinary perspective and placement of
food-related issues into a sociological context.
