Read. Write. Oxford.
From the hearty dishes of the American South to hotly debated GMOs, Food: A Reader for Writers serves up articles from a wide range of cultures, economic strata, and moments in time. It covers food's relationship to such topics as memory and identity, politics and health, the environment and economy, and travel and worldviews.
Developed for courses in first-year writing, Food: A Reader for Writers includes an interdisciplinary mix of public, academic, and cultural reading selections, providing students with the rhetorical knowledge and analytical strategies required to participate effectively in discussions about food and culture.
Food: A Reader for Writers is part of a series of brief, single-topic readers from Oxford University Press designed for today's college writing courses. Each reader in this series approaches a topic of contemporary conversation from multiple perspectives.
