Book News
For students and general readers, Liberman, a public librarian and freelance writer, surveys American food in each decade of the twentieth century, illustrating how societal changes--including commercial, ethnic, and cultural forces--influenced dietary and dining habits. Each chapter begins with a description of the overall historical and social factors contributing to dietary choices, followed by alphabetical entries that relate to types of foods (with some recipes), brands, cookbooks, agriculture, technology, government intervention, social movements, events, celebrity chefs, food writers, and TV personalities.
