Why are human food habits so diverse? Why do Americans recoil at the thought of dog meat? In this book, Marvin Harris leads us on an amusing & informative detective adventure to solve the world's major food puzzles. Harris serves up a smart & funny fare of fact about food, humorously spooning out such wisdom as why there has been an explosion in fast food & why children universally reject spinach.
