"The author is an academic, not a journalist, and his efforts to get the food facts right ring through every page. Paarlberg challenges many of the ideas that are frequently voiced - but rarely questioned - in popular food discourse...Although many of his claims call into question sacrosanct principles in activist and academic circles, there are good reasons to hear Paarlberg out; he backs up his arguments with data, and writes based on decades of experience as a political scientist and policy analyst working in the field." --Nature Geoscience

"Paarlberg's book is a timely contribution to the discussion about the politics of food, both domestically and internationallyEL. Although advocates of alternative farming methods are unlikely to agree with Food Politics, they should nevertheless read it. Paarlberg is a serious, knowledgeable scholar." --Journal of Politics

"[Paarlberg] is one of the most distinguished academics in the field of global food politics and is able to draw on a lifetime of research. Although the book is clearly underpinned by a considerable body of evidence, the writing style is engaging and easily digestible. It would serve as an excellent introduction to the topic for students." --International Studies Review

"Going well beyond its title, Food Politics addresses key questions about agriculture, including consumers' concerns about food safety, producers' concerns about price volatility, and taxpayers' concerns about subsidies. Paarlberg organizes his material around a long list of questions about food policies and practices...His answers to these and many other questions are accessible and nuanced." --Foreign Affairs

"A much needed corrective to a clanging bandwagon of culinary protest that asks well-off consumers to drop out, stay local and go green, while the rest of the world worries about its next bowl of rice." --The Texas Observer

"The great strength of Food Politics is the breadth of topics covered. For an undergraduate class, this book will provide students exposure to the world of food production and provisioning and the underlying political and social ideas and research that shape food and our relationship to itEL.As the subtitle suggests, Paarlberg covers almost every topic that one should know about food. Additionally, Paarlberg uses simple but precise language to cover the vast array of food topics...The strengths of the book encouraged me to use it in a directed readings course." --The American Journal of Agricultural Economics

HASH(0x9ad8915c) von 5 Sternen Excellent summary overview 15. März 2014
Von Marcus Aurelius - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"Food Politics" provides a comprehensive, readable summary of the topic, well organized in 15 short chapters. Each chapter follows a question/answer format, with an obvious attempt to present the different sides of this highly politicized topic. Paarlberg's style is crisp and aimed at someone seeking to get up to speed on the topic. Along the way, you will pick up many interesting facts and arguments that will keep you in the conversation the next time this comes up at a social event. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x9ae55b40) von 5 Sternen What a terrific book for teaching! 23. Februar 2015
Von ron herring - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
What a terrific book for teaching! The only complaint the students had was: 'it's too optimistic.' So then we read The End of Food and -- you guessed it -- 'it's too pessimistic.' That's actually a good pairing: Paarberg's techno-market optimism is a good foil for doomsday scenarios so common in the media. The formatting in Paarlberg's book is user-friendly, intuitive. The Q and A format is stimulating and retains focus for each section. Paarlberg's prose is admirably clear and jargon-free except when explaining jargon that students will encounter in political discourse. The coverage is broad and many concrete examples illustrate important points effectively, culled from experiences all over the world. Food Politics is a sophisticated treatment of a very broad canvass of important issues.

HASH(0x9ae5ad74) von 5 Sternen Excellent Primer 17. Januar 2014
Von J. bohstedt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is that rare thing, an excellent introduction to many of the most important issues in our global polity, economy and society. I would hope everybody reads it for that reason. It is clear, concise, and very readable -- just the thing to connect students with fundamental issues they won't hear much about on FOX or CNN, until the next food crisis hits. It is much easier to go long than to go short, so I admire this book very much. The range of issues he covers and his care in summing up debates are wonderful.

HASH(0x9ae0baec) von 5 Sternen Really? How do you know that? 7. Januar 2016
Von skeptical - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
How do I give this book zero stars? How does one take an academic book seriously where the author provides no citations for his claims? How does one take a book seriously where the author writes "Some analysts concluded" (page 24, one of many examples), but neither tells us who these analysts are or gives us a citation to examine their work? How does one take seriously an author who writes in vague generalities without showing evidence or causation? Is it too much to expect for an author to show evidence to back up their argument? Is it too much to expect that an author demonstrates an understanding of critical thinking? Paarlberg fails to construct an argument supported by evidence and logic.

Reading this book was an exercise in frustration. I kept finding myself saying "Really? How do you know that? Where is the evidence?"

I had high expectations for this work as it is published by Oxford and am sadly disappointed. Oxford University Press should be ashamed.

Interesting book. Unfortunately I had not given much thought to the politics of food growing. The book seemed to be unbiased and accurate.
