This [is a] new edition of Imhoff's lucid explanation of the farm bill and the [many] issues it covers. I'm not aware of anything else that comes close to explaining this most obscure and obfuscated piece of legislation. I will use this book in my NYU classes and borrow the stunning illustrations for talks. - Marion Nestle, Food Politics blog."Daniel Imhoff's 'Food Fight' provides a better explanation of the Farm Bill, which Congress is currently fussing with, than anyone else." -- Marion Nestle, professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University"The single best guide to the upcoming Farm Bill fight." -- Michael Pollan
"For the price of a few hours of reading and making marginal notes ... this book can be turned into a potent weapon of enlightenment. This is citizen's education at its finest." -- Chris Walters, ACRES USA
