Abstract:

Through meticulous research, the author presents a shocking account of how agricultural policy has been hijacked by lobbyists, driving out independent farmers and food processors in favor of the likes of Cargill, Tyson, Kraft, and ConAgra. She takes aim at these large corporations, who have gained control of food production backed by political clout, preventing farmers from raising healthy crops and limiting the choices that people can make in the grocery store. She demonstrates how the impacts ripple far and wide, from economic stagnation in rural communities at home, to famines in poor countries overseas. In the end, she illustrates how solving this crisis will require a complete structural shift, a grassroots movement to reshape our food system from seed to table, a change that is about politics, not just personal choice.
