CFP: The Food Business

As you may have noticed, the Greenwood Publishing Group has become
one of the leading publishers of books on the cultural side of food.
A complete listing of Greenwood's food studies titles can be found
at: <

We are co-editing a new, two-volume encyclopedia, for Greenwood (_The
Business of Food: Encyclopedia of the Food Industry_, scheduled for
publication early in 2008), and we're looking for people to write one
or more entries. If you are interested in writing on the subject for
this encyclopedia, please consult the List of Unassigned Entries, below.

There are small honoraria (the amounts vary with the size of entries,
and are identified in the list of unassigned articles), and the
authors of the entries will, naturally, be credited. Please respond
as soon as possible, as we must have all the articles in hand by
December 1, 2006.

Thanks for reading this far – we look forward to collaborating with
you on this project.


Gary Allen, Food Writer and Adjunct Professor, Empire State College

Ken Albala, Professor of History, Pacific University
