Sustainable Food Futures : Multidisciplinary Solutions (Hardcover)
About this item
Food security is one of the world's current major challenges, but research and discussion on it are often fragmented between different academic disciplines and appraches. Resolution of this disconnect is now recognized as a priority. This book takes on this challenge by breaking down interdisciplinary barriers to develop innovatory food security solutions.
The book is structured so that readers are taken in a logical progression through discussion of topics such as markets and technology, to waste and the relevance of gender, place and scale. The range of examples discussed is deliberately broad to encourage thinking in new ways, and includes case studies from Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America. The book should serve as a supplementary textbook for a wide range of courses in food studies and related disciplines.
