In this very timely book, two of the world’s most prominent critics of the global food system, Eric Holt-Giménez and Raj Patel, dissect the causes of hunger and the food price crisis, locating them in a political economy of capitalist industrial production dominated by corporations and driven by the search for profits for the few instead of the welfare of the many. Here, greed has played just as destructive role as in the financial sector.
This book is an analytical resource for anyone interested in understanding the food crisis. It is an information manual for those who wish to do something about it, including students, researcher and practitioners in the areas of food security, sustainability, public administration and development economics.
