About this book

A series of original mini-essays help create an easy-to-read insight into the politics and reality of food in the 21st century. Across the world, people are becoming increasingly concerned about the way food is mass produced from battery chickens and farmed salmon, to genetically modified crops, irradiated ingredients and the use of growth hormones. In the UK alone, 25,000,000 kilos of pesticides are sprayed on food every year, all adding to a growing belief that the food we produce is no longer safe to eat. The Little Food Book provides insight into all of these issues, developing powerful arguments chapter by chapter, although each chapter also stands alone as a concise outline of a particular issue.
