Description

This publication extends the previous conception of food regimes, as formulated by Friedmann and McMichael, through which they examined the march of imperial/ corporate global food strategies, here McMichael re-examines the agrarian question historically and its present-day implications. He introduces regional interpretations of the food regime concept, incorporating gender, labour, financial, ecological and nutritional dimensions.

This book explores the relationships between industrial food, energy, climate and financial crises and food regime restructuring, which includes agro-fuels, land grabbing, the bio-economy, agro-security mercantilism and the food sovereignty movement.

Publisher's Description

Food Regimes and Agrarian Questions extends the original conception of the food regime, formulated by Harriet Friedmann and Philip McMichael, detailing new dimensions of the succession of imperial, intensive and corporate food regimes. Developing the methodological contributions of food regime analysis, McMichael re-examines the agrarian question historically and its present-day implications, introduces regional interpretations of the food regime and incorporates gender, labour, financial, ecological and nutritional dimensions into his analysis. Finally, McMichael explores the relationships between contemporary food, energy, climate and financial crises and food regime restructuring, which includes agrofuels, land grabbing, the bioeconomy, agro-security mercantilism and the food sovereignty movement.
