Food Politics (What Everyone Needs to Know) by Robert Paarlberg
Food Politics (What Everyone Needs to Know)

SLP, April 22, 2011

This is an appalling book that does not look into the complexities of the issues surrounding food consumption, production, and agriculture. This writing is simple and easy to understand, which is important, but it glosses over many issues with a result of perpetuating myths surrounding organic foods and agribusiness that exist already. If you are even a little informed on food issues this book will disgust you. It is a tarnish on Oxford's name. If you are looking to learn about food issues, do not read this book, it is full of myths and simplifies the complexities to the point of damaging the movement.
