Reviews

'This impressive volume comprehensively and insightfully explores connections between food and nationalism against a backdrop of nationalist politics and global capitalism. Food is the ultimate site for the domestication of the nation. From invented food traditions to symbolic struggles over food's national authenticity and from food consumption and production to its national branding in global markets, authors Ichijo and Ranta deftly survey the multiple modalities through which food is intertwined with the politics of nationalism. This long overdue book whets our appetite for a new approach to food and the banal, but also politicised, reproduction of national sensibilities.'- Jon Fox, University of Bristol, UK
