Klappentext In this second edition of The Sociology of Food and Agriculture, students are provided with a substantially revised and updated introductory text to this emergent field.

"Carolan delivers a brilliant and insightful overview of agrifood systems with a level of accessibility that will reach undergraduates and rigor that will convince graduate students. Supported by evidence and scholarly references throughout, this work exceeds the standards of most textbooks, while infusing pedagogy that is absent in typical monographs." Gregory Fulkerson, Associate Professor of Sociology,State University of New York at Oneonta, USA. "The interactions between food and society are incredibly complex, as well as increasingly contested. This book illustrates the value of applying a critical, sociological lens to these topics. The second edition is even more comprehensive, and remains an extraordinary synthesis of a very diverse field of scholarship." Philip H. Howard,, Associate Professor of Community Sustainability, Michigan State University, USA and author of Concentration and Power in the Food System. "I found the first edition quite useful for helping the growing number of students enrolling in my sociology of agriculture and food systems course survey the field. I appreciate the expanded topics in thissecond edition that explore in more depth an even broader range of food system topics that reflect where the field is evolving.I also really love all the graphics integrated into the text." Jeff S. Sharp, Director and Professor of Rural Sociology, The Ohio State University, USA. "Michael Carolan's second edition of the Sociology of Food and Agriculture is a timely addition to a growing chorus that describes our current predicaments while offering sources and tools of hope. Carolan's unique style blends the breadth and depth of a creative academic, a driven sociological imagination and a passion for justice around issues of food and agriculture that can inform and inspire students and scholars alike. This is a vital book at an important time." Paul V. Stock, Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology and Environmental Studies Program, The University of Kansas, USA.

Michael Carolan is Professor and Chair, Department of Sociology, Colorado State University, USA. He is the author or co-editor of several other books including The Real Cost of Cheap Food, Reclaiming Food Securituy and Cheaponomics: The High Cost of Low Prices, all published by Routledge.
