'Food Justice': A look at the future of food

November 17, 2010 |  8:02 am

Food Justice Final "Food Justice" reveals the inequities in the current food production system, farm workers' rights, food's overall impact on and connection to the environment, as well as a way to re-create our connection to eating.

In their new book from MIT Press, Robert Gottlieb and Anupama Joshi show how lack of access to fresh food and obesity are linked, how the small family farm has changed in the last century, and what groups across the nation are starting to do to transform America's current eating habits.

For the full review of the book, see our environment blog Greenspace.
