Everyone Eats: Understanding Food and Culture


"Everyone Eats is 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 of The 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."
