Food Wars : The Global Battle for Mouths, Minds and Markets
In the years since publication of the first edition of Food Wars much has happened in the world of food policy. This new edition brings these developments fully up to date within the original analytical framework of competing paradigms or worldviews shaping the direction and decision-making within food politics and policy.
The key theme of the importance of integrating human and environmental health has become even more pressing. In the first edition the authors set out and brought together the different strands of emerging agendas and competing narratives. The second edition retains the same core structure and includes updated examples, case studies and the new issues which show how these conflicting tendencies have played out in practice over recent years and what this tells us about the way the global food system is heading. Examples of key issues given increased attention include:
nutrition, including the global rise in obesity, as well as chronic conditions, hunger and under-nutrition
the environment, particularly the challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, water stress and food security
food industry concentration and market power
volatility and uncertainty over food prices and policy responses
tensions over food, democracy and citizenship
social and cultural aspects impacting food and nutrition policies.
