Hope's Edge: The Next Diet for a Small Planet

by

Hope's Edge: The Next Diet for a Small Planet Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thirty years ago, Frances Moore Lappé started a revolution in the way Americans think about food and hunger. Now Frances and her daughter, Anna, pick up where Diet for a Small Planet left off. Together they set out on an around-the-world journey to explore the greatest challenges we face in the new millennium. Traveling to Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe, they discovered answers to one of the most urgent issues of our time: whether we can transcend the rampant consumerism and capitalism to find the paths that each of us can follow to heal our lives as well as the planet.

 

Featuring nearly seventy recipes from celebrated vegetarian culinary pioneers-including Alice Waters, Mollie Katzen, Laurel Robertson, Nora Pouillon, and Anna Thomas-Hope's Edge highlights true trailblazers engaged in social, environmental, and economic transformations.

 

Synopsis:

"Hope's Edge" follows the author of the classic "Diet for a Small Planet" and her daughter as they travel the world, discovering practical visionaries who are making a difference in world hunger, sometimes one village at a time.
