YR 2008 SN 9781582462462 1582462461 AB "A photographic collection exploring what the world eats featuring portraits of twenty-five families from twenty-one countries surrounded by a week's worth of food"--Provided by publisher. This volume visits 25 families in 21 countries around the world. Each family is photographed surrounded by a week's worth of food and groceries, which the authors use as a way of investigating not only different cultures' diets and standard of living but also the impact of globalization -- why doesn't abundance bring better health, instead of increased occurrences of diabetes and similar diseases? The main narrative presents friendly, multigenerational portraits of each family, with meals and food preparation an avenue toward understanding their hopes and struggles. A wealth of supporting information -- color photographs, family recipes, maps, sidebars, etc. -- surrounds the text and implies questions about global food supplies.
