Book Description Praeger. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 148 pages. Dimensions: 10.0in. x 6.6in. x 0.9in.The Politics of Food: The Global Conflict between Food Security and Food Sovereignty argues that our current global food system constitutes a massive violation of human rights. In this impassioned, well-researched book, William Schanbacher makes the case that the food security model for combating global hungerdriven by the United Nations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and other organizationsis a failure, too dependent on trade and too reliant on international agribusiness. Instead, the emerging model of food sovereigntyhelping local farmers and businesses produce better quality foodis the more effective and responsible approach. Through numerous case studies, the book examines critical issues of global trade and corporate monopolization of the food industry, while examining the emerging social justice movements that seek to make food sovereignty the model for battling hunger. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9780313363283
