Description

"In the first half of Food Rebellions: Crisis and the Hunger for Justice Eric Holt-Giménez, Raj Patel and Annie Shattuck provide a trenchant analysis of the root causes of the global food crisis. The second half of the book is dedicated to exploring solutions to the crisis; both the false solutions advanced by the managers of the global corporate food regime, and the grassroots solutions—both practical and political—being advanced by the world’s food movements. Reflecting the transformative desire for just, sustainable, and democratically-controlled food systems, the book ends by stating: “The global food crisis has brought us together. We can end the injustices that cause hunger. There has never been a better time.” (http://www.foodmovementsunite.org/)
