Second Edition

Mustafa Koç, Jennifer Sumner, and Anthony Winson

  • New chapters - on critical dietics, farm animal welfare, genetically modified crops, Canadian and global food security, sustainability, and alternative food systems - give students a glimpse into current topics in the food studies field.
  • A truly interdisciplinary approach - with perspectives from sociology, anthropology, geography, political science, and environmental studies - gives students a broad introduction to this growing field of study.
  • Original articles by leading academics showcase the diversity and extent of food studies research taking place within Canada and the world.
  • Offers Canadian and international coverage of the complex relationships, processes, and arrangements that affect - and are affected by - food systems on local, regional, and global levels.
  • Up-to-date research relates key discussions and theories to current, real-life situations.
  • Extensive pedagogical tools - including lists of learning objectives, discussion questions, annotated further readings, a glossary of key terms, and new video suggestions - encourage students to engage critically with and synthesize chapter material.
