In rich countries, obesity is now a more serious problem than hunger. Consumers once satisfied with cheap and convenient food now want food that is also safe, nutritious, fresh, and grown by local farmers using fewer chemicals. Heavily subsidized and underregulated commercial farmers are facing stronger push back from environmentalists and consumer activists, and food companies are under the microscope.

Meanwhile, agricultural success in Asia has spurred income growth and dietary enrichment, but agricultural failure in Africa has left one-third of all citizens undernourished - and the international markets that link these diverse regions together are subject to sudden disruption.

Politics in each of these areas has become polarized over the past decade by conflicting claims and accusations from advocates on all sides. For those ready to have their thinking about food politics informed and also challenged, this is the book to read.

Excerpt When it comes to food, everybody is interested. We all have strong opinions about food, just as we do about politics. Food issues that become political are thus doubly divisive. For each issue I would cover, a number of readers with views opposed to my own would be offended. Food politics can be a realm of irreconcilable difference. For each issue, there would also be specialists better informed than I, ready to notice even the smallest error. With each topic covered, then, I would be angering one group of readers while revealing my limitations to the other.

What persuaded me to write this book was press coverage of the so-called world food crisis of When international food prices spiked upward sharply in the spring of that year, I was struck by the different stories told. Journalists reported that the world was running out of food.

Food Politics : What Everyone Needs to Know (R)

Paarlberg challenges many of the ideas that are frequently voiced - but rarely questioned - in popular food discourse Although many of his claims call into question sacrosanct principles in activist and academic circles, there are good reasons to hear Paarlberg out; he backs up his arguments with data, and writes based on decades of experience as a political scientist and policy analyst working in the field. Although advocates of alternative farming methods are unlikely to agree with Food Politics, they should nevertheless read it. Paarlberg is a serious, knowledgeable scholar.
