Book Description

1 Aug 2004
'Food Wars is a heartening book which calls for a radical change in the way the world feeds itself. It offers a blueprint for a future where nobody goes to bed hungry.' Derek Cooper, founder presenter of the BBC's Food Programme 'An important book that should be read by everyone who cares about how the way food is produced affects our own health as well as that of the environment and our national economies.' Marion Nestle, author of Food Politics, and Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, New York University The emergence of global markets has a far-reaching impact on what we eat and on health, food security, social justice and quality of life. What matters now is not just what we eat, but how and where it has been produced, distributed and processed, and the assumptions upon which this production is based - a global politics of food and health. Food Wars argues that two conflicting paradigms (one developing food through integrating the 'life sciences', the other though 'ecology') are battling to replace the dominant industrial-productionist model of the 20th century, both grappling to attract investment, public support and policy legitimacy over the appropriate use of biology and food technologies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific account 14 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book will change the way you view your breakfast cereal for ever! Never again will you chew your morning banana without questioning whether your really should have poured sugary yoghurt all over it! Seriously, this is a very useful account of the major fault-lines in contemporary food and health thinking. The absurdities of the food supply chain are laid bare. Food wars proposes that two emerging paradigms are now competing for which is to replace the mid-20th century paradigm that argued that public health and well-being would automatically follow from increasing food production.

Even though this semi-academic book is ten years old now, it still has an important contribution to make. Are we all being duped by the supermarkets on the back of 'more choice'? And what are the environmental costs?
