The End of Food: The Coming Crisis in the World Food Industry

by Paul Roberts - £10.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747596424 | ISBN 10: 0747596425

How the era of postwar superabundance is coming to and end and what awaits us by the author of the best-selling The End of Oil.

The emergence of large-scale food production gave us unprecedented abundance but at a steep and ultimately unsustainable price. Relentless cost-cutting has made our food systems vulnerable to contamination and disease. More than a billion people are overweight or obese, yet roughly the same number are still malnourished. Over-crowded countries like China are already planning for tightened global food supplies.

As the world veers back to a time of hunger and uncertainty, Paul Roberts explores the vulnerable miracle of our modern food economy and pinpoints the decisions we must make to avoid the coming meltdown.
