The Politics of Food PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Politics of Food free pdf "The Politics of Food" argues that the current global food structure constitutes a massive violation of human rights. In this impassioned but scrupulously-researched book, William Schanbacher makes the case that the food security model for combating global hunger - driven by the United Nations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and other organizations - is an abject failure, too dependent on trade and too reliant on international agribusiness. Instead, the emerging model of food sovereignty - helping local farmers and businesses produce better quality food - is the more effective and responsible approach. Through numerous case studies, the book examines critical issues of global trade and corporate monopolization of the food industry, while examining the emerging social justice movements that seek to make food sovereignty the model for battling hunger.
