Ranging from colossal Californian supermarkets to wrecked Indian paddy fields and bankrupt African coffee farms, this audio edition of the bestselling book scrutinizes the global food network. With a combination of hard-hitting investigative journalism and personable storytelling, several questions are explored, such as How can starving people also be obese? Why does everything have soy in it? and How do petrochemicals and biofuels control the price of food? Shocking evidence points to an epidemic of farmer suicides in famine-stricken Asia and Africa, yet there is great cause for hope as international resistance movements work to create a more democratic, sustainable, and joyful food system. Going beyond ethical consumerism, the study explains the steps, from seed to store to plate, to regain control of the global food economy, stop the exploitation of both farmers and consumers, and rebalance global sustenance.

About the Author:

Raj Patel is a writer, an activist, and a former policy analyst with Food First. He has worked for the World Bank, the WTO, and the United Nations and has also protested them on four continents. He lives in San Francisco, California.

Review:

"For anyone attempting to make sense of the world food crisis, or understand the links between U.S. farm policy and the ability of the world's poor to feed themselves, Stuffed and Starved is indispensable."  Michael Pollan, author, The Omnivore's Dilemma

"A blistering indictment of the policies of multinational agribusiness conglomerates and charges that their drive for profit at any cost has left the developing world starving while wealthy countries like the United States are experiencing epidemic obesity rates and related health problems."   Newsweek



"For Patel, it is a short step from Western consumers 'engorged and intoxicated' with cheap processed food to Mexican and Indian farmers committing suicide because they can’t make a living. The 'food industry’s pabulum' makes us all cogs in an evil machine."  The New Yorker
