On Food and Health forms part of Museum Futures, a new collection of books which explore - in a concise, highly-readable format - contemporary, challenging issues facing museums. Many museums and galleries include exhibitions on obesity and personal behaviour. Few examine the social forces and causes of the obesity epidemic. In On Food and Health, highly-regarded institutions like the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History and the Hood Museum of Art share their experience and provide the insights and advice needed to: * Help museums become a powerful places to impact attitudes, values and behaviour. * Research and understand a museum community's "ideal museum experiences". * Mount successful issue-based exhibits - even in museums which are highly object-based. * Help museums to matter more to their communities.
