Eating Out: Social Differentiation, Consumption and Pleasure

by

Eating Out: Social Differentiation, Consumption and Pleasure Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eating Out is a fascinating study of the consumption of food outside the home. Through surveys and intensive interviews carried out in England in the 1990s, the authors have collected a wealth of information into people's attitudes toward, and expectations of, eating out as a form of entertainment and an expression of taste and status. This book will be a valuable resource to academics, advanced students and practitioners in the sociology of consumption, cultural studies, tourism and hospitality, home economics, marketing and to the general reader.

Synopsis:

A fascinating study, based on extensive recent research, of the practice of eating out.
