Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An accessible and balanced account, "Food Politics "laid the groundwork for today's food revolution and changed the way we respond to food industry marketing practices. Now, a new introduction and concluding chapter bring us up to date on the key events in that movement. This pathbreaking, prize-winning book helps us understand more clearly than ever before what we eat and why.

Synopsis:
