The expression "you are what you eat" certainly applies to Americans, not just in terms of our physical health, but also in the myriad ways that our taste preferences, eating habits, and food culture are intrinsically tied to our society and history. This standout reference work comprises two volumes containing more than 600 alphabetically arranged historical entries on American foods and beverages, as well as dozens of historical recipes for traditional American foods; and a third volume of more than 120 primary source documents. Never before has there been a reference work that coalesces this diverse range of information into a single set. The entries in this set provide information that will transform any American history research project into an engaging learning experience. Examples include explanations of how tuna fish became a staple food product for Americans, how the canning industry emerged from the Civil War, the difference between Americans and people of other countries in terms of what percentage of their income is spent on food and beverages, and how taxation on beverages like tea, rum, and whisky set off important political rebellions in U.S. history.

Sensual yet pre-eminently functional, food is of intrinsic interest to us all. It was a necessity and pleasure in ancient times as well, although the ingredients used often varied from what would appeal to modern tastes.
In this informative and entertaining reference work, Andrew Dalby, explores an encyclopaedic range of foods (and drinks) known from the Greek and Roman worlds.
Entries range from a few lines to a couple of pages. They encompass individual foodstuffs such as catfish, gazelle, peaches and parsley, as well as utensils, ancient writers on food, and a vast array of other topics, drawn from classical literature, history and archaeology, along with examinations of modern scholarship.
Approachable, reliable and fun, this A-Z explains and clarifies a subject that crops up in numerous classical sources, from plays to histories and beyond. It also gives references to useful primary and secondary reading.
It will be an invaluable companion for students, academics and gastronomes alike.
