Applied anthropologist Page-Reeves edited these research papers addressing the question of how women in difficult and changing circumstances exercise agency and power through food-related work. As the book reveals, the answer is complicated because of the diverse ways people experience hunger, and because hunger and poverty are not simple categories. After the editor’s introduction, the 12 case studies use diverse methods to address the problems women face in feeding their families. Five chapters discuss Latino migrant communities in the US, two are set in rural Canada, two in poor urban neighborhoods in the US, two in Latin America, one traces an African migrant in New York, and one discusses the gender balance of the contemporary 'food movement' in the US. One unifying theme is the issue of domination or resistance: are women making bad choices, or do they have no choice because of political and economic structures?. . . .Summing Up: . . . Specialists.
