1604861037 New in new dust jacket. Brand New! Support Pacific Northwest Independent Booksellers! PM Audio, 10. Audience: General/trade. How can starving people also be obese? Why does everything have soy in it? How do petrochemicals and biofuels control the price of food? It's a perverse fact of modern life: There are more starving people in the world than ever before (800 million) while there are also more people overweight (1 billion). On this audio CD, Raj Patel talks about his investigation to find out how we got to this point and what we can do about it. His research took him from the colossal supermarkets of California to India's wrecked paddy-fields and Africa's bankrupt coffee farms, while along the way he ate genetically engineered soy beans and dodged flying objects in the protestor-packed streets of South Korea. What he found was shocking, from the false choices given us by supermarkets to a global epidemic of farmer suicides, and real reasons for famine in Asia and Africa. Yet he also found great cause for hope--in international resistance movements working to create a more democratic, sustainable and joyful food system. Going beyond ethical consumerism, Patel explains, from seed to store to plate, the steps to regain control of the global food economy, stop the exploitation of both farmers and consumers, and rebalance global sustenance.

More Description

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.
