Abstract

Reviews 303 epilogue concludes the book with a reiteration of the author’s exciting theme: how, in a project of self-invention, soybean milk was refashioned in China as a solution for national rejuvenation through the nutritional uplift of a diet conceived as inadequate to the needs of the modern world. Post-reform dietary development awaits a fuller study. Overall, the story of the reinvention of soy offers a rich understanding of the history of modern China. This is an excellent book for scholars interested in soy in particular, but also for those interested in food in general. It clearly traces the links between soybean milk production, nutrition scientists, and social issues to create new meanings and understanding about food, the body, and nationhood. I recommend it to postgraduate students and scholars of China, as well as to those interested in seeing how history can be written through the study of food and nutrition over time.
