The value of nothing : how to reshape market society and redefine democracy by Raj Patel ( Book )
37 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Patel shows how our faith in prices as a way of valuing the world is misplaced and reveals that our current crisis is not simply the result of too much of the wrong kind of economics but rather the larger failure of a democratically bankrupt political system. The solution he offers: discover democratic ways in which people, and not simply governments, can play a crucial role in deciding how we might share our world and its resources in common."--Provided by publisher

Stuffed and starved : markets, power and the hidden battle for the world food system by Raj Patel ( Book )
21 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Today, in the West, we appear to have the world on our plates, regardless of source or season. But this apparent luxury of choice is only possible because rural communities the world over have had their choices taken away. To understand how our supermarket shopping makes us complicit in denying freedom to the world's poorest, and how we ourselves are poisoned by our choices, we need to think about the way our food comes to us. Having worked with international policy makers, visited local farming collectives in Brazil and Mexico, investigated the all-powerful distribution networks, and gone behind the scenes in the kitchens of Europe's McDonald's restaurants, Raj Patel is able to take a long and wide view of food production and tell the story of commercial greed and helpless hunger that lies behind every meal we eat

"Voices of the Poor" provides a unique and detailed picture of the life of the poor and explains the constraints poor people face to escape from poverty in a way that more traditional survey techniques do not capture well. Each of the three volumes demonstrates the importance of voice and power in poor people's definition of poverty. 'Voices of the Poor' concludes that we need to expand our conventional views of poverty which focus on income expenditure, education, and health to include measures of voice and empowerment

Food Movements Unite! Strategies to Transform Our Food System by Samir Amin ( )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Food Movements Unite!. Strategies to transform our food systems. The present corporate food regime dominating the planet's food systems is environmentally destructive, financially volatile and socially unjust. Though the regime's contributions to the planet's fourfold foodfuelfinance and climate crises are well documented, the "solutions" advanced by our national and global institutions reinforce the same destructive technological path, the same global market fundamentalism, and the same unregulated consolidation of corporate power in the food system that brought us the crisis in the first pla

Stuffed and starved : from farm to fork the hidden battle for the world food system by Raj Patel ( Book )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A revision of Stuffed and Starved first issued in 2007. The author takes us into the supermarket aisles and reveals the stories behind the products in our trolleys, some of them very dark indeed. His definitive account of the global food system ranges across GM crops, history and export issues, rising levels of obesity and other health crises. It's a mad world where we encounter Coca Cola "cosmeceuticals" that promise to improve complexion and breast size, where Nestlé owns Jenny Craig - and Unilever, home of Ben and Jerry's icecream, owns Slimfast. It is also a positive story of resistance in the paddy fields of India, the maize ejidos of Mexico and the Italian Slow Food kitchens, to name but a few. This is a groundbreaking look and the people and products of the New Food Order
