Was pleased to find this softcover in the LFL today when I stopped by to drop off some books of my own!

Later: the book came out in 2008, but feels all too current. The author touches on a variety of issues related to food production and distribution, from the ecological damage caused by large-scale monoculture and beef production to epidemics - and highlighting the ways in which there are still food deserts in the world where starvation is rife, while other regions waste unimaginable quantities of food. There are suggestions for ways - both individual and by public policy - to ameliorate the worst problems, but they won't happen by themselves.

[For other food-related discourse, see The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. That one's focused on individual choices, but the examples of sustainable agriculture could be models for the future. ]
