The Ritual of Dinner : The author of the much-admired Much Depends on Dinner turns her acute eye and irresistible wit from the foods we eat to the way in which we eat them. The Rituals of Dinner explores our marvelously revealing, colorful and complex world at the table, illuminating it with examples from the ancient Greeks to modern yuppies, cannibalism and the Eucharist, formal dinners and picnics, and from the sublime to the ridiculous - depending on where you sit. When we eat together, we bring our culture with us. Throughout history, table manners have been one way of keeping the peace, of domesticating some of the wilder aspects of human behavior. In showing us why we act as we do, Margaret Visser provides a history of how we handle that mightiest of necessities and most potent of symbols, a medium through which we express goodwill, animosity and our sense of place in society.
