It's not easy to eat well. To choose food wisely, you need to knowwhere it comes from and how it's produced. As consumers, most of usdon't know what we're getting and eating in our supermarkets andrestaurants. When rumours and food scares circulate in the media,we panic. Since most of us know very little about the real state ofagriculture today and the ways in which the global agriculturalindustry produces the foods that end up on our plates, we have nobasis on which to make informed judgements.

In this important new book, José Bové andFrançois Dufour – two men from modest farmingbackgrounds who have become international icons of the resistanceto global capitalism – unveil the workings of theagricultural industry today and lay down the principles for thecreation of a new agriculture for the twenty-first century.Following on from their international bestseller The World isnot For Sale, Bové and Dufour have joined forces again tobuild a constructive programme for the food of the future. Theyseek to make available to every citizen the facts they need inorder to understand the crisis of agriculture today and to see howwe can move beyond it. Presenting a positive agenda for a new kindof agriculture, they lay the foundations for a renewal of trustbetween farmers and citizen-consumers in a way that would bringfood – and the production of food – back into the heartof modern society.
