About this work


"Food Wars argues that two conflicting paradigms (one developing food through integrating the 'life sciences', the other through integrating 'ecology') are battling to replace the dominant industrial-productionist model of the 20th century, both grappling to attract investment, public support and policy legitimacy over the appropriate use of biology and food technologies."--Jacket.
