Reviews

“[This book] provides a holistic understanding of food-related activities and behaviour … both theoretical and empirical arguments are covered in a balanced manner. The volume takes cognisance of the ‘minutiae of food experiences’ (p. 19) of people with respect to sustainability, cutting across the globe.” • European Association of Social Anthropologists Journal

“Contains a valuable and diverse set of essays that will help readers to understand the complexities of sustainable food and food systems and to advance cross-national and cross-cultural comparisons.” • Ellen Messer, Food Anthropologist

Description

Sustainability is one of the great problems facing food production today. Using cross-disciplinary perspectives from international scholars working in social, cultural and biological anthropology, ecology and environmental biology, this volume brings many new perspectives to the problems we face.  Its cross-disciplinary framework of chapters with local, regional and continental perspectives provides a global outlook on sustainability issues. These case studies will appeal to those working in public sector agencies, NGOs, consultancies and other bodies focused on food security, human nutrition and environmental sustainability.

Paul Collinson is an Honorary Research Fellow and former lecturer in the Department of Anthropology at Oxford Brookes University. He is Chair of the UK section of the International Commission on the Anthropology of Food and Nutrition.

Iain Young is Vice Dean for Student Experience and Risk in the University of Liverpool School of Medicine.
