Since 1978, the European Commission on the Anthropology of Food and Nutrition of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences has organized sixteen symposia on food and nutrition, considered from the viewpoint of both the social and biological sciences. This edited volume is the outcome of the symposium held in 1991, sponsored by the Max Planck Society and convened by the two editors. The topic of the meeting was the use of food to enhance status.
