Food Security (Hardcover)
about this item
Especially in an era of rapid global environmental change, questions and issues about and around food security are dizzying in their complexity—and urgency. Now, to answer the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of this fast-moving area, and its vast and multidisciplinary corpus of scholarly literature, Routledge announces a new title in its acclaimed series, Critical Concepts in the Environment. Edited by a pair of expert researchers, this new Major Works collection embraces a wide variety of methodological traditions to bring together in four volumes the foundational and the very best cutting-edge scholarship. The collection enables users to access—and to make sense of—the most important research and practice. It provides a synoptic view of all the key issues, current debates, and controversies.
Food Security is fully indexed and includes comprehensive introductions, newly written by the editors, which place the collected materials in their historical and intellectual context. It is an essential reference collection and is destined to be valued by scholars and students—as well as policy-makers and practitioners—as a vital one-stop research and pedagogic resource.
