Summary
"Christopher D. Cook's investigation takes us beyond fast food and GMOs to explain why our entire food system is in crisis." "Food, our most basic necessity, has become a force behind a staggering array of social, economic, and environmental epidemics. Yet there is another way. Taking heart from the promising surge in organics, farmers' markets, and slow food, Cook argues cogently for a whole new way of looking at what we eat - one that places healthy, sustainable produced food at the top of the menu for political change."--BOOK JACKET
