Eat Not this Flesh: Food Avoidances from Prehistory to the Present
Univ of Wisconsin Press, 1994 - 550 páginas
Hailed as a classic when initially published in 1961, Eat Not This Flesh was the first book that explored, from a historical and cultural perspective, taboos against eating certain kinds of flesh. Frederick J. Simoons's research remains original and invaluable, the only attempt of its kind to reconstruct the origin and spread of food avoidances while challenging current Western explanations. In this expanded and updated edition, Simoons integrates new research as he examines the use and avoidance of flesh foods--including beef, pork, chicken, and eggs, camel, dog, horse, and fish--from antiquity to the present day.
