Read full description of the books:



This book was a bit more interesting than I'd feared, but still dry as a bone. It was about how the post-civil-war diet was mainly grains and meat, and over the next 50-60 years we started adding more dairy and vegetables/fruits to our diet. Also about the integration of new immigrant tastes to the American palate (met with reluctance at best) and about the discovery of vitamins and such. It also examined the social engineering of home economics and how in order to change the diets of the poor you had to find a way to get the wealthy to want to eat in the target style and get the poor people to emulate them. It worked with mixed success. Also discussed were a bunch of batshit marketing claims that a lot of companies made about their products (and still do, in my opinion). And how companies got women to stop nursing, for example. Not a bad book, but written in that sleep-inducing font and the chronology of the work was a complete mess. But it was as much about sociology and marketing as it was about food. (And like many other books I've read, it referenced The Jungle.)
