The Atlas of Food: Who Eats What, Where, and Why Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What we eat, where we eat, and how we eat: these questions are explored in this remarkable book, first published in 2002. Now in its second edition, The Atlas of Food provides an up-to-date and visually appealing way of understanding the important issues relating to global food and agriculture. In mapping out broad areas of investigation-contamination of food and water, over-nutrition, micronutrient deficiency, processing, farming, and trade-it offers a concise overview of today's food-and-farming concerns. Buttressed by engaging prose and vivid graphics, Erik Millstone and Tim Lang convincingly argue that human progress depends on resolving global inequality and creating a more sustainable food production system. Their updated and comprehensive maps show the damage in stark terms-from the loss of native crops and consumption of empty calories in affluent societies to the continuing struggle of the world's poor to feed themselves-and demonstrate our complicity. The Atlas of Food provokes us to consider new options and to engage in new actions that might reshape the agri-food industries for the benefit of all consumers, whether from the global north or the global south.
