Quick Overview

A world tour of food—from industrialized production and consumption to community food security. Author Wayne Roberts talks about his new book The No-Nonsense Guide to World Food while on an organic farm in PEI. 'Like the other No-Nonsense Guides in this series, this book is a terrific primer, and a must-read for anyone who wants to work towards a healthier and more equitable food system'. Community Food Centres Canada 'Solid research underpins Roberts' lucid, readable account of the modern food system and multifaceted efforts to transform it… a superb introduction.' Harriet Friedmann , Department of Sociology, University of Toronto


With spiralling food prices and spreading social unrest this is a timely guide to the instability of industrialized food systems. Wayne Roberts traces the history of food production and consumption, and shows that in a system dominated by supermarkets and agri-business real food choices are becoming harder to make. This book asks all the right questions, and provides some of the answers, in a real, democratic debate about food. It shows how people and communities can take control from governments and corporations to organize themselves creatively to achieve food sovereignty - a balanced, just and sustainable food system eBook: 140 pages Publisher: New Internationalist (September 2013) Language: English
