About this work
An exploration in the history of biopolitics, The Early American Table offers a unique study of the ways in which English colonists in North America incorporated the "you are what you eat" philosophy into their conception of themselves and their proper place in society. Eden aptly demonstrates that ideas about the body-ideas that may seem irrelevant or even laughable today-not only guided day-to-day personal behavior but also influenced society and politics.
