Emeritus professor of economic and social history at the University of Westminster, Derek J. Oddy has spent forty years writing and editing studies of diet and health in Britain and Europe, with an emphasis on economics and food policy. From the collection he edited with Derek Miller in 1976, The Making of the Modern British Diet, to that he compiled with John Burnett in 1994, The Origins and Development of Food Policies in Europe, Oddy has pursued his project with remarkable focus. From Plain Fare to Fusion Food is the product of an expertise honed over much more than a generation, and it shows.
