520    "Tasting Paradise on Earth examines the tension between 
       China's fast-forward modernization and its prevalent 
       cultural nostalgia through an interdisciplinary 
       exploration of how key cities in Jiangsu and Zhejiang 
       Provinces in the Lower Yangzi Delta region, or 'Jiangnan, 
       ' preserve culinary inheritance while also revamping it 
       for the new millennium. Throughout Chinese history, food 
       nostalgia has generated cultural currency for individuals.
       Tasting Paradise on Earth examines literary treatments of 
       Jiangnan foodways from late imperial and twentieth-century
       China, and demonstrates the metamorphosis of this cultural
       landscape in contemporary China, with its new platforms 
       for food nostalgia, such as broadcast media and the 
       Internet. It also highlights the role that gender plays in
       the expression of food nostalgia and the construction of 
       personal and cultural identities. This analysis both sheds
       light on Chinese modernization and has broader comparative
       relevance for the study of global food cultures and 
       modernization. It demonstrates that the (re)formation and 
       management of individual and collective identities in a 
       society undergoing massive transformations can be achieved
       by homely arts such as cooking, in addition to--and 
       perhaps more effectively than--'high' art forms such as 
       literature and music"--|cProvided by publisher.
