About This Book

It is obvious that visualisation affects the landscape but not so immediately clear that food and eating patterns, the foodscape, is also affected. This is a systematic account of interlinked changes in food habits, gender roles and urban development in the mid-1990s in the radically changing mega-city of Bangkok. Reference is also made to Singapore's food culture. Field study material and tabulated data offer information and insights into Thai and Southeast Asian food systems, the functioning of food shops and stalls, the roles of women and the impact of state and local public authorities. With summaries of research methods used, glossary, black-and-white illustrations, bibliography and index.
