No-Nonsense Guide to World Food 2013

Authors: 

The world food system is put under the microscope in this updated edition of The No-Nonsense Guide to World Food.

RRP:
£7.99

In this updated edition of The No-Nonsense Guide to World Food Wayne Roberts puts under the microscope a global food system that is under strain from climate change and from economic disaster. He shows how a world food system based on supermarkets and agribusiness corporations is unsustainable and looks at new models of producing healthy food from all over the world.

[Roberts has] imbued this important book with wit, profound insights and also some lovely turns of phrase that make it, ultimately, a manifest of hope for food, which he sees as the "many-splendored asset" that it once was and can be again. - Joan Baxter, Rabble.ca

Wayne Roberts' No-Nonsense Guide to World Food is a helpful antidote, and an accessible read appropriate for activists, students, or anyone curious about the complex terrain of food politics [and that] food is at the heart of future transformative change.

World Food (2013) is ideal for anyone who is new to food-system politics, as a primer for understanding many of the issues discussed in both academic and popular literature today... both illuminating and helpful in understanding present day circumstances.

Jenelle Regnier-Davies and Steffanie Scott
