FOOD POLITICS PAARLBERG PDF

In rich countries, obesity is now a more serious problem than hunger. Consumers once satisfied with cheap and convenient food now want food that is also safe, nutritious, fresh, and grown by local farmers using fewer chemicals. Heavily subsidized and underregulated commercial farmers are facing stronger push back from environmentalists and consumer activists, and food companies are under the microscope. Meanwhile, agricultural success in Asia has spurred income growth and dietary enrichment, but agricultural failure in Africa has left one-third of all citizens undernourished - and the international markets that link these diverse regions together are subject to sudden disruption. Politics in each of these areas has become polarized over the past decade by conflicting claims and accusations from advocates on all sides.

Paarlberg challenges many of the ideas that are frequently voiced - but rarely questioned - in popular food discourse Although many of his claims call into question sacrosanct principles in activist and academic circles, there are good reasons to hear Paarlberg out; he backs up his arguments with data, and writes based on decades of experience as a political scientist and policy analyst working in the field.

Although advocates of alternative farming methods are unlikely to agree with Food Politics, they should nevertheless read it.

Paarlberg is a serious, knowledgeable scholar. Although the book is clearly underpinned by a considerable body of evidence, the writing style is engaging and easily digestible. It would serve as an excellent introduction to the topic for students. Paarlberg organizes his material around a long list of questions about food policies and practices His answers to these and many other questions are accessible and nuanced. For an undergraduate class, this book will provide students exposure to the world of food production and provisioning and the underlying political and social ideas and research that shape food and our relationship to itEL.

As the subtitle suggests, Paarlberg covers almost every topic that one should know about food. Additionally, Paarlberg uses simple but precise language to cover the vast array of food topics The strengths of the book encouraged me to use it in a directed readings course.
