Helena Norberg-Hodge, Todd Merrified, Steven Gorelick, Local Futures/International Society for Ecology and Culture United States, 2002

The costs of the global food system are enormous and growing larger every day. Based on industrial monocultures and long-distance transport and trade, it is erasing the rich diversity of food systems worldwide. This book illustrates the bleak realities of ‘global food’ and outlines how we can shift direction – towards local food systems that meet real human and ecological needs.
