n African Review of Economics and Finance - Food and Development, E.M. Young : book review

Volume 4, Issue 1

This is a very timely book. Not only is food exploding as a social science issue, but also food is perhaps the most important development issue, if not global issue, of our time, particularly since, as Young points out, the production and consumption of food has integral links with the petroleum industry (p. 2). This book is well-written and organized. It has extensive documenting of sources, and is in many ways a perfect textbook for courses in food, in development, and in globalisation, and a useful supplement for courses in environment, gender, political economy, geography, politics, and health, amongst others.
