Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The best-selling author of The End of Oil takes a close-up look at the modern food system to reveal how we maket, market, and consume food and how this has led to inequities in the global market, analyzing the dangerous impact of chemicals and destructive farming techniques, food contamination, and disease, as well as what needs to be done to address the situation before it is too late.


Review:

"A revealing, deeply dismaying overview of how the world's food is produced and marketed."

Kirkus Reviews, 04/15/2008

Review:

"What sets Roberts apart is how he pulls...topics together into a panorama of the food economy as a whole."

James Pressley, Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.), 06/29/2008
