about

John L. Smith explores the full range of this fascinating discipline, from the physiology of hunger and the psychophysics of taste and smell, to the development of food preferences and the social psychology of food-related behaviour and attitudes. He provides a much-needed overview of social scientific approaches to the study of food, bringing together physiological research, psychodynamic theory, and sociological perspectives to both celebrate differences and explore potential fusion.

About The Author

John L. Smith is Reader in Social Psychology at the University of Sunderland.
