Abstract

The author presents the history of sociological theories about food and consumption. This brief description, by and large, coincides with the description of the development of the whole discipline. The purpose of this text is not to give a personal or original view of the development of sociology, but to acquaint interested readers with the main directions of the sociological literature and references to modern studies of food and consumption. In addition, this text seeks to show that sociological and historical studies often intersect and enrich each other
