Julie J. Lesnik is assistant professor of anthropology at Wayne State University.
"Thought-provoking. . . . Lesnik elegantly explains and summarizes the research and evidence for entomophagy in human and primate evolution, applies this information to the importance of incorporating edible insects into current and future world food needs, and sets up a hypothetical framework for further investigations."--American Entomologist "This book is distinguished by the breadth of information brought together to examine the role of edible insects in human evolution. It is clearly written, with a dynamism that transcends the examination of evidence to examining its relevance for contemporary issues."--Journal of Insects as Food and Feed "A relatable story of one person's adventures in insect cuisine."--The Independent "A well-written book looking into insect eating from an evolutionary perspective."--Quarterly Review of Biology
