Perhaps best known for his acclaimed critique of crude historical distinctions between 'West' and 'East' - and overblown claims for the uniqueness of the West - Goody in this new collection pursues his argument into the sphere of culture."--BOOK JACKET. "The development of romantic love, the evolution of national and regional cuisines, the globalisation of Chinese food, the histories of various taboos on certain types of food and drink, the uniqueness of the European family - such are the fascinating and diverse themes Goody addresses, effortlessly ranging from Europe to Asia and Africa."--BOOK JACKET. "Throughout the book, Goody demonstrates that the ethnocentricity of much of Western scholarship has distorted not only the comprehension of the East but also developments in the European past and present."--Jacket." ;
