Making sense of the food rebellions

Raj Patel and Eric Holt-Giménez (09/2009)

Food sovereignty, the democratisation of food systems and the trouble with the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa are among the topics touched on by Raj Patel and Eric Holt-Giménez, in a lively interview with Pambazuka News about their latest book, Food Rebellions! Drawing together wide-ranging diagnosis of the causes of recent ‘food riots’ around the world, with ‘an understanding of the politics of resistance that they bear witness to’, the authors describe the text as a ‘working book, for real social change’. Food Rebellions! is published by Pambazuka Press.
