No-Nonsense Guide to World Food

No-Nonsense Guide to World Food


A world tour of food—from industrialized production and consumption to community food security


With spiralling food prices and spreading social unrest this is a timely guide to the instability of industrialized food systems. Wayne Roberts traces the history of food production and consumption, and shows that in a system dominated by supermarkets and agri-business real food choices are becoming harder to make.

This book asks all the right questions, and provides some of the answers, in a real, democratic debate about food. It shows how people and communities can take control from governments and corporations to organize themselves creatively to achieve 'food sovereignty' – a balanced, just and sustainable food system.
