Reviewer:

I'm still trying to figure out why anthropologists decided to publish this book. Probably wanted tax write-offs for trips to Fiji, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand! NZ sells flaps (cuts of fatty sheep bellies that most Westerners won't eat) to Pacific Island nations as a cheap source of protein and calories. Big deal. Poor people have always bought lesser cuts of meat. But I did enjoy learning about food systems outside the US- turns out we all have the same problems. Not recommended.
