Great Books -- Or So They Seem

I am getting ready to leave the New York University Bobst Library. I see next to a computer on a floor I happened to go to to Read the New York Times three books on eating. Although I do not concentrate on that, these books seem interesting:

Eating As I Go: Scenes form America and Abroad by Doris Friedensohn
Food, Morals and Meaning: The Pleasure and Anxiety of Eating by John Coveney
The Year of Eating Dangerously by Tom Parker Bowles

Some chapters in the second one seem especially captivating:

Foucault, Discourse, Power and the Subject

Greeks to the Christians: From Ethics to Guilt

Nutrition Homescapes in the Twentieth Century

An Ethnography of Family Food: Subjects of Food Choice
