Summary "Fifteen specialists currently working in Canada, England, France, Guatemala, Norway, and the United States apply their expert knowledge of food and food consumption in a new context - global history. They build on the latest research, much of it their own, to reflect on the connections across space and time in what people eat and also to identify major, global patterns of change over time and in this global era."--BOOK JACKET
