Food is a contentious topic in the contemporary United States. But our debates surrounding food are hardly new. The chapters in Food Fights constitute a series of debates about food, emphasizing the historical background to our current arguments. All the authors share the assumption that knowing how we got the food and foodways we have today will help us appreciate both the triumphs and failures, strengths and weaknesses of our current food system, and thereby build some common understanding between those who only condemn its problems and those who see only its virtues.

Keywords:   Food system, Food history, Food studies, Foodways, Foodies
