Food, Health and Identity raises topical issues such as the perceptions of risk, the increase of vegetarianism, and the relative ineffectiveness of official eating advice. It will provide invaluable reading for students of anthropology, cultural studies and health promotion as well as those scientists and policymakers who are concerned with food. The introduction explains how social scientists can help us understand why people eat what they do. In the following chapters well known anthropologists and sociologists discuss themes of change, continuity and identity in food and eating in Britain.
