About this book

Already awareness about the need to change our attitude to food is growing. Cooperatives and community farms are springing up, ancient traditions are being reintroduced, organic methods are being discovered and developed, and traditional skills are being re-learnt as part of the transition from oil dependence to a low carbon world. If we get it right the global population will be well-fed and healthy, 'stuffed' full of good food. If we get it wrong, with rampant climate change, ecosystems damaged beyond repair, and not enough food to eat, stuffed takes on a whole new meaning.

This book builds on a basic understanding of the issues in food politics and offers a way forward for people wishing to exercise personal choices about the food they eat and guidance on how to make change happen on a wider scale. The passionate voices of well known contributors such as Monty Don and Eric Schlosser entice the reader into familiar subjects, pull them deeper into these issues and presents new ideas to raise awareness and encourage action.
