Abstract / Summary
If the many social, environmental, and economic crises facing the planet are to be reversed, argue the authors of Bringing the Food Economy Home, local food economies must be rebuilt. Their thought-provoking analysis demonstrates how bringing food production to a local level revitalizes rural economies in both the developing and the industrialized worlds at the same time that it benefits consumers and the environment.
