Author(s):Anderson, E. N
Religion(s):Taoism
Publisher Name:Yale University Press
Place of Publication:New Haven, Conn.
Date of Publication:1988
Annotation:Anderson focuses on China, a country that feeds a quarter of the world’s population on a relatively small area of cultivable land, in order to address the issue of world hunger. After briefly mentioning the efficiency of the socialist government’s agricultural system, Anderson turns his attention from modern industrial technologies to traditional agricultural methodologies. He provides a history of food and its social functions in medieval and imperial China and includes basic cooking strategies and traditional medicinal values.
