Product description


"A fine, wise and extraordinarily timely book that addresses agricultural and food systems worldwide from field to plate, and shows how precisely they can become more sustainable and healthy." Professor Jules Pretty OBE, University of Essex, UK.

"Environment and Food is an extraordinarily accessible and comprehensive account of the ecological consequences of our agri-food systems. Colin Sage offers a timely and thoughtful guide to rethinking the relationship between food and ecology in an age of rising social and environmental uncertainty." Professor Philip McMichael, Cornell University, USA.

"Although written as a textbook, this is a highly accessible and comprehensive account of the relationship between environment and food, both now and potentially in the future. The overall agenda has to be the creation of a sustainable food system, which the current agri-industry model is certainly not, especially when tied in with the global food industry and its pursuit of profit at the expense of the health of their customers." David Lorimer, Network Review
