    Chad Lavin approaches “Eating Anxiety: The Perils of Food Politics” from an ontopolitical perspective in an attempt to analyze the relationship between food, personal identity, global inequality, and cultural authenticity (Lavin ix).

    Based on his research towards Taiwan aborigines, Shepherd did an excellent historical-anthropological analysis to demonstrate that trade networks were the primary reason to draw Dutch and Chinese settlers to the Taiwan frontier in the later time.
