Eating in Northeastern Cambodia. A Socio-AnthropologicalApproach to Highland Food in Ratanakiri investigates food among societies practicing swidden agriculture in Ratanakiri province, Northeastern Cambodia. The author provides a qualitative and anthropological description of food habits, practices and representations among these non-Khmer (Kreung, Tampuan, Kavet and Jaraï) populations who live in small, dispersed villages. Her investigation questions the relevance of the concept of affluent societies in contemporary Ratanakiri.
