About the Author:

Tanya M. Kerssen writes and teaches on the political economy of food, agriculture, and rural development with a focus on Latin America and Africa. She holds an MA in Latin American Studies from the University of California Berkeley and is the author of the Food First book Grabbing Power: The new struggles for land, food, and democracy in Northern Honduras.

Review:

"It is a pleasure to congratulate Food First on four decades of valuable work educating the public and thus laying the basis for constructive efforts to address growing crises that we cannot evade. The significance and urgency of this work is even greater today than before, as the very serious threat of environmental catastrophe becomes more evident and imminent. This is no time to relax our efforts. Rather, to redouble them." - Noam Chomsky, Professor Emeritus, Massachusetts Institute of Technology "For 40 years, Food First has been at the forefront of deep thinking about the consequences of agricultural and food consumption practices and injustices, and what needs to be done to achieve food systems that are healthier for people and the planet. It is an invaluable resource for students, scholars, and advocates. May it flourish for another 40 years at least!" - Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, New York University, and author of Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition and Health "Food First is a champion of farmworkers' rights in the US! Lifting the voices of farmworkers in the national dialogue on food sovereignty. ĦQue viva pa siempre!" - Rosalinda Guillen, Executive Director, Community to Community Development, Bellingham, WA "Want to know what the world will be discussing tomorrow about the food system? Look to Food First today. Where else to find astute politics, accountable research, and cutting edge thinking on how we eat today, and how we'll eat tomorrow? Happy birthday, and thank you, Food First!" - Raj Patel, author, Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System "Thanks to 40 years of pioneering and progressive work by Food First, we have a clearer and more critical understanding of the roots of hunger, the injustices of the world's food system, corporate control, and the ecological footprint of industrial agriculture. Thanks to this revolutionary work we also have deeper insights into the agroecological alternatives and the path that food system transformation must take. I am proud to have been associated with such a unique think tank for more than 20 years." - Miguel Altieri, Professor of Agroecology, University of California Berkeley "Food First is the best independent think tank on global food politics. It is my political compass on food issues. I wish you more power as we celebrate your 40th anniversary!" - Jun Borras, Professor of Agrarian Studies, Institute of Social Studies (ISS), The Hague
