Synopses & Reviews
This is the book that started a revolution in the way that Americans eat. Today, vegetarianism and "the politics of food" is at the center of a growing environmental movement that also encompasses animal rightists and recyclers. This 20th anniversary edition of an ecological classic features a substantive new introduction where Lappe stresses how her philosophy remains valid that food is the central issue through which to understand world politics.
Here again is the extraordinary bestselling book that taught America the social and personal significance of a new way of eating — one that remains a complete guide for eating well in the 90s. Featuring: simple rules for a healthy diet; a streamlined, easy-to-use format; delicious food combinations of protein-rich meals without meat; hundreds of wonderful recipes, and much more.
With the new emphasis on environmentalism in the 1990's, Lappe stresses how her philosophy remains valid, and how food remains the central issue through which to understand world politics.
