Item Description...

This book examines Chinese food and the culture of food consumption in East and Southeast Asia. Through the lens of food, the authors address recent theories in social science concerning cultural identity, ethnicity, boundary formation, consumerism and globalization, and the invention of local cuisine in the context of rapid culture change. Written by distinguished anthropologist who have years of research experience in their respective countries and regions, this book shows how human preparation and consumption of food carry important social, economic, political, and spiritual meanings.

The book describes many interesting Chinese foodways in contemporary Asia, including rice porridge culture and changing diet in rural Pearl River delta, South China; tea cafes, Hakka restaurants, and dim sum eating in Hong Kong; ethnic relations and Chinese food in Southeast Asia; localization of Chinese food in South Korea; adaptation of Chinese noodles in Japanese daily meals; distribution of pork eating in Asia; and globalization and breakfast in Taiwan. This volume concludes with a commentary by a renowned anthropologist, Professor Sidney Mintz.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Interesting subject boringly rendered  Sep 18, 2003
This could've been a most interesting subjects. Besides, I don't think many people have written on this amusing topic. Unfortunately, the authors of this book has succeeded to make it a boring tome that can have only limited appeal to both the casual readers and academics.
