From Virtue to Vice book cover

Professor Richard O'Connor and his colleague, Penny Van Esterik, and I have recently had our manuscript, From Virtue to Vice: Negotiating Anorexia accepted by by Berghahn for their Food, Culture and Nutrition series.  It is scheduled to come out in March 2015.  For more information on purchasing a copy click here.  They are currently writing a second volume that applies the same bicultural approach to breastfeeding. ‌ Its tentative title is The Dance of Nurture: Embodying Infant Feeding. Our initial findings are presented in "Breastfeeding as Custom not Culture:  Cutting Meaning Down to Size," published in Anthropology Today in 2012.
