Product Description

Review

Marx understood the dynamics of the current food crisis over a century ago. Robert Albritton has written a fine primer, bridging the best thinking of the nineteenth century to the urgent needs of the twenty-first. (Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved)

Let Them Eat Junk pulls no punches in its analysis of the contradictions of 21st Century food systems. To understand how starvation and obesity can coexist in the same populations, follow the flow of capital. Everyone who cares about food equity and the preservation of democracy should read this book. (Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University, author of Food Politics (2003))

In Let Them Eat Junk, Robert Albritton speaks a language that has gone unheard for too long. Karl Marx felt that capitalism's focus on short-term profit was a recipe for disaster when it came to agriculture. Now Albritton shows that, in many ways, the old man was right. (Debora MacKenzie, New Scientist)

About the Author

Robert Albritton is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Political Science at York University, Toronto, Canada. He has published seven books on Marxist theory.
