Review

There is a 2015 Supplement to this book that is available for free download at the companion website, foodfarmingsustainability.com.

From the Author

Although this book was written to for use in a law school classroom, others find the information interesting and important to consider.  Law impacts our food system in a myriad of complex ways. If you want to learn about or to change our food system, you must first understand the law that frames it.

I am learning a lot about agricultural law from this book. It is jam packed with good information. The trouble is that it is exactly what the title says it is. A series of only slightly related short readings loosely grouped together and jumping from one reading to the next with almost no transition, except the title author date type info. No idea why these particular readings were chosen or put into this order.

Most of the readings are reasonably clear and after you read enough you can sort of work out how different parts tie together, but it often seems like the editor just emptied her file cabinet, got permission from as many copyright holders as possible, pulled out the ones she did not get permission for and published the rest in the order she found them in.

Even half a page of intro and summary at the beginning and end of each chapter would help for readers who are not familiar with the information when they start reading, but there is not even a sentence for transition. Oh well, there is a ton of information here, just put on your mental barn boots, and wade through it.
