Media reviews

"Lang and Heaseman's book 'offers a panorama' of the modern-day, global food industry to impress on policy makers, decision-makers in the industry, and the public that there are alternatives to the current practices which deliver much unhealthy food and at times leave food shortages in places. At the core of their recommended alternatives is a 'new conception of health [...] linking human and ecological health.' A professor and researcher respectively at London's City University, Lang and Heasman have a comprehensive grasp of the structure and workings of the food industry that goes beyond the perspectives and policies of any particular government or region. With this impressive grasp, they are able to propose workable alternatives to problems such as obesity, diabetes, and starvation caused mainly by shortsighted practices and ends of major institutions in the food industry."
