Wilk's book is an interesting anthropological study about how a specific place (Belize) reflects
a general phenomenon (globalization) that impacts a fundamental part of human existence (food
supply and diet). Wilk uses Belize as an example since piracy converted it into "a fast food nation"
global foodstuffs, changes in tastes--in the seventeenth century. His discussion of subsequent
developments to the present poses numerous thought-provoking questions about what globalization
means for all of us.
