Summary
"Anthropology of Food examines in detail the viewpoints and strategies of people whose food resources are insecure, exploring their perceptions of the value of land, of farm labour organization, of the way markets operate, of famine relief campaigns, and of the shape and impact of agrarian development policies. The book focuses on the ways that farmers' perspectives and the approaches by policy makers may clash, and reflects on the direction of future research and policy-making, stressing that it is the moral responsibility of researchers to be aware of the social dynamics of food security." "This book will appeal to second- and third-year undergraduates and postgraduates in the field of anthropology, development studies, human nutrition, human geography, and public policy. It will also be of great interest to policy makers responsible for rural development and food security."--Jacket
