About this item

Corn Meets Maize links the everyday practices of growing, cooking, and exchanging food in specific cultural, economic, and ecological contexts to broader social movements in Mexico and beyond. The local food networks Lauren E. Baker explores in Mexico are rich examples of contemporary agricultural and culinary transformations; they also reveal the impacts of neoliberal economic policies and new agricultural biotechnologies. Drawing on concrete examples of projects and people working to transform global food systems, she provides important insight into the complexities of food politics from field to fork.
