The CRC Series in Modern Nutrition is dedicated to providing the widest possible coverage of topics in nutrition. Nutrition is an interdisciplinary, interprofessional field par excellence. It is noted by its broad range and diversity. We trust that the titles and authorship in this series will reflect that range and diversity.
Published for a scholarly audience, the volumes in the CRC Series in Modern Nutrition are designed to explain, review, and explore present knowledge and recent trends, developments, and advances in nutrition. As such, they will also appeal to the educated general reader. The format for the series will vary with the needs of the author and the topic, including, but not limited to, edited volumes, monographs, handbooks, and texts.
Contributors from any bona fide area of nutrition, including the controversial, are welcome.
We welcome the contribution Vegetarian Nutrition, edited by Joan Sabate with the collaboration of Rosemary Ratzin-Turner. There is a great deal of interest regarding vegetarianism as an alternate dietary pattern. This book discusses that issue in detail and will appeal to nutritionists, dietitians, physicians, students, and professionals in the health sciences and health services arenas.
