He is lead author of The Food System (1995) and co-editor of The Meat Business (1999) and Negotiating Health (2005).

Review:

'This is the best single summary of the political choices facing food and agriculture policymakers that has been written in this decade.' Pat Mooney, Executive Director, the ETC Group 'An excellent resource for those mapping the increasing control of our food chain by international players.' Suman Sahai, Director, Gene Campaign, India 'A comprehensive and outstanding analysis.' Keith E. Maskus, Professor of Economics, University of Colorado at Boulder 'Brave, visionary and inevitably controversial.' Andrew Bennett, Executive Director, Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture 'An excellent collection of guideposts for perplexed students and scholars and a handbook for the seasoned diplomat seeking to make the world a better place.' Professor Calestous Juma, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University 'I recommend it to all who play a role in the formulation of relevant international norms in whatever capacity, and regardless of the interests they may represent.' Leo Palma, Deputy Director, Advisory Centre on WTO Law 'Well-researched ... condenses the essence of decades of negotiations into a readable but disturbing narrative ... it is essential reading.' Patrick Mulvany, Chair, UK Food Group 'A Thoroughly researched book. For those who want to defend food sovereignty, it is essential reading.' GRAIN 'A valuable addition to the vast literature on the commoditization of food and its effects on the livelihoods of poor people in developing countries.' The Journal of Biosocial Science 'Worth having for the three and a half page glossary alone which will make sure you know what you are talking about if you stray into a conversation about genetic engineering, genomics or intellectual property rights.' BMS world mission, Catalyst Magazine
