Book Description

26 July 2013
What we eat, where we eat, and how we eat: these questions are explored in this remarkable book, now with a new introduction contextualizing the atlas for 2013 and beyond. By providing an up-to-date and visually appealing understanding of important issues around global food and agriculture, "The Atlas of Food" maps out broad areas of investigation--contamination of food and water, overnutrition, micronutrient deficiency, processing, farming, and trade--to offer a concise overview of today's food and farming concerns. Buttressed by engaging prose and vivid graphics, Erik Millstone and Tim Lang convincingly argue that human progress depends on resolving global inequality and creating a more sustainable food production system.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware! 12 Mar 2014
By SB

They say it is an updated introduction - and it is. Unfortunately ONLY the introduction is new, none of the data has been updated since the last, 2005, edition. So, while this book is useful and well laid out, it is out of date. Especially disappointing given the time sensitivity of the subject matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice way to convey a lot of information without a lot of words. 14 Feb 2014

I bought this book as a required text for a course I'm taking, but I really like this book and would have enjoyed it if I had discovered it independently. The visualizations convey a lot of information in a very concise manner, and it is really interesting to see the geospatial patterns of different food related data.
