Complacent food politics,

This review is from: Food Politics: What Everyone Needs to Know (Paperback)
This writer seems to think that his explanations are the "true" reasons for the food crises! The book would be more interesting if he had included opposing views now and then! And he gives some rather curious reasons to account for some of the issues. For example he believes that customers in developing countries choose to go to MacDonalds because they have toilets (Does he not realise that other places in developing countries have toilets too?). My biggest disappointment is he leaves out crucial aspects (like the WTO Agreement on Agriculture that permits the US and Europe and Japan to keep their farm subsidies) in the book and believes that only the US is a significant player. There are better books on the subject than this one. I prefer to read Waldon Bello or Ray Patel.
