A book I must have

Ever since reading Defoliart's (1999) review article on the subject, I've wanted to learn more about the insects eaten by various cultures. Now, Syaffolee has posted a review of a book I absolutely must have: Man Eating Bugs: The Art and Science of Eating Insects (by Menzel and D'Aluisio). As the title implies, it discusses human entomophagy in various cultures across the world. It's even got pictures. Drool.

DeFoliart, G. R. 1999. Insects as Food: Why the Western Attitude Is Important. Annual Review of Entomology 44: 21-50.
