Description

This collection of essays explores some of the complex relations between meat and health in the twentieth century. It highlights a complicated array of contradictory attitudes towards meat and human health. They show how meat came to be regarded as a central part of a modern healthy diet and trace critiques of meat-eating and the meat industry.

Studies for the Society for the Social History of Medicine is concerned with all aspects of health, illness and medicine, from antiquity to the present. The series is a collaboration between Routledge and the Society for the Social History of Medicine (SSHM). The SSHM has pioneered the social history of medicine and interdisciplinary approaches to the histories of medicine, welfare, public health, demography, anthropology, sociology, social administration and health economics, and the book series reflects these interests.
