Product description

Review

Patel writes with a precision and clarity that make his unavoidably bulky suitcase of statistics accessible
-- New Statesman

Patel's broad treatment helps laymen connect the dots, [and] hear the voices of those [at the bottom] of the food-chain
-- Time Magazine

Patel's range is impressive...This is a book full of insight, that makes an important contribution -- The Guardian

This critique of the world food system could not be better timed...Patel writes with passion and commitment -- Scotland on Sunday

This is one book above all I'd love to see at the top of the bestseller lists. A clear, hard-headed analysis -- Sue Baker, Publishing News

`An important and radical contribution to the literature on the food we eat and the world in which we live.' -- Suzanne Jeffery, Socialist Review

`If you want to know the real cost of the food on your plate, read this book.'
-- Tribune

`One of the most dazzling books I have read in a very long time. The product of a brilliant mind, and a gift to a world hungering for justice.' -- Naomi Klein

`This is the kind of book from which you emerge enlightened, surprised, angry and determined.'
-- Paul Kingsworth, Independent

About the Author

Raj Patel was educated at Oxford, the LSE, and Cornell. A former fellow at Yale and Berkeley, he is now at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. He has worked for the World Bank, interned at the WTO, consulted for the UN, and been tear-gassed on four continents protesting against his former employers. He is one of only a few activists trusted to work with the Via Campesina peasant movement. He also co-edits a webzine "The Voice of the Turtle", and is the secret author of a widely-praised series of heartwarming tales about a bear, his best friend, and socialism with Chinese characteristics: The Mao of Pooh.
