Description - Appetites and Identities by Ms Sara Delamont

"Appetites and Identities" provides an introduction to the social anthropology of western Europe. It covers food, migration, politics, urban and country life, magic, religion, sex and language in an accessible and straightforward fashion, introducing the student to aspects of the anthropology of contemporary European culture from mussel farmers in the Netherlands to Basque chambermaids in Lourdes, and from unhappy bachelors in western Ireland to unwitchers in Portugal. Avoiding the technical language of many anthropological textbooks, this book sets out the anthropological literature on the rich diversity of dialects, cultures and everyday lives of western European people, offering insights on how each region and community differs from its counterparts despite the notion of an integrated Europe. The book should stimulate curiosity about social anthropological investigation, and about life in Europe today.
