Pressestimmen

"The chapters do an excellent job of showing the intersection of structure and agency, including both powerful actors who alter structures in their own interests and grassroots movements that set up alternative structures and different interpretations of reality... The authors of this volume analyze actors who are struggling to construct alternative food systems in harmony with humanity and nature."-Contemporary Sociology
