Waste Matters free pdf This book offers the first framing of potential social science approaches to the compelling and yet hugely under-researched topic of food waste. * Shows how the profile of waste has suddenly increased as a topic of sociological relevance and extends these developments to analyses of food * Conceptualises waste as a dynamic category and one that plays an important role in processes of cultural and economic organisation * Brings together theoretical and empirical contributions from a range of disciplinary perspectives * Engages with food waste in a number of contexts and at a variety of scales * Explores issues such as the regulation and governance of food systems- the materiality of foodstuffs and associated technologies- the dynamics of social practices and what goes on in domestic kitchens- the ways in which food and waste are circulated in societies- dumpster diving and freeganism, and socio-technical innovations for waste reduction * Demonstrates how food waste is a useful lens through which to tend to a number of contemporary issues within sociology and social theory
