Bibliography - Rural Sociology, Sociology of Agriculture And Food

Rural Sociology and Sociology of Agriculture, Books on Rural Sociology,

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.
