About the Author:

Erik Millstone is Professor of Science Policy at the University of Sussex, UK. He has been working on food-related issues since the mid-1970s and is the author of Food Additives; Additives: A Guide for Everyone; Our Genetic Future; Lead and Public Health and BSE: Risk, Science and Governance, as well as numerous journal and magazine articles on the politics of food and health. He is currently working on a project concerned with reconciling improved food production for poor farmers in developing countries with environmental sustainability, as part of the STEPs centre. Tim Lang is Professor of Food Policy at City University's Centre for Food Policy in London. He studies how policy affects the shape of the food supply chain, what people eat, and the societal, health, and environmental outcomes. He is a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health, a Vice-President of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and a regular consultant to the World Health Organization and other governmental and non-governmental public bodies. Since 2006, he has been Land Use and Natural Resources Commissioner on the UK Government's Sustainable Development Commission. He is co-author of Food Wars and The Unmanageable Consumer, and is widely credited as coining the term 'food miles'.

Review:

Impressive and far-ranging, an extremely useful and comprehensive, if disturbing, read.' Financial Times 'Fascinating and comprehensive.' New Agriculturist 'This splendid presentation of deeply worrying data and trends should be a wake-up call.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'An extraordinarily clear basis for understanding the underlying issues, this vital study clearly shows how threatened the security of the food supply chain has become in a globally interconnected world.' Ecologist 'A unique and easily accessible insight into the way our world food system works. This splendid presentation of deeply worrying data and trends should be a wake-up call.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'A remarkable book that reveals with devastating clarity the bizarre way the world feeds itself. The quest to find out just what's happening to our food is no longer a journey without maps.' The Food Programme, BBC Radio 4 'A fascinating book which gives global perspective on food and its production and supply... extremely well illustrated with maps and graphs.' Nutrition and Food Science 'The Atlas of Food provides an authoritative account of the food chain.' Food Manufacture 'This is a terrific resource for those who want to know all about how the world feeds itseld, who produces what and where it goes. A comprehensive study.' Health Food Business
