The No-Nonsense Guide to World Food

Between the Lines | September 15, 2008 | 192 pages

Food security is a topic that is increasingly in the public consciousness. Covering fast food, health food, institutional food, and more, this timely guide shows how "real food" has become increasingly scarce, dominated as it is in the West by agri-business and supermarkets. In the no-nonsense tone for which these guides are known, Wayne Roberts covers nutrition, health, economics and more. He also gives examples of effective food-ways being developed by individuals, communities, and governments. An essential guide to this important issue, this book will appeal to students, food professionals and activists, public health staff and concerned citizens -- anyone who aims to understand the world food system and how it can be improved. Wayne Robertsis a leading North American writer, activist and practitioner in community food security. Author and columnist for NOW Magazine, he's on the board of the Community Food Security Coalition and Food Secure Canada, and manages the Toronto Food Policy Council, the most respected city food group in the world.
