How We Eat: Appetite, Culture, And The Psychology Of Food
How We Eat: Appetite, Culture, and the Psychology of Food
Rappoport treats the dinner table like a Freudian couch, asking us to lie back and spill our guts. Tracing our culinary customs from the Stone Age to the stovetop range, he illuminates our complex and often contradictory eating habits, and suggests that perhaps we are what we eat.
