Format: Paperback
This book makes a critical contribution to discussions of the current food crisis and what can be done to increase food equality, security and justice. It covers multiple global regions and in particular Africa, Latin America, Europe and the United States. I was particularly amazed by the statistics indicating that organic, smallholder, local, polycrop farms are more productive than the intensive monocropping with chemical inputs. This is a critical point. The book would have been strengthened by more expanded treatment of pervasive arguments for GMO and Green Revolution technologies. The value of these agricultural "innovations" is assumed by a large section of those concerned with food, and who are not necessarily convinced by a significantly one-sided argument in opposition. The arguments that resonate with less financially invested individuals must be addressed at their maximum strength in order to prove convincing. This weakness, however, should in no way detract from the invaluable contributions that this book makes to projects for sustainable food security.

Format: Paperback
I found Food Rebellions! to be a concise critique of the global food system backed a wealth of data and (short) case studies. Speaking as a reader already familiar with many of the issues discussed, it was a quick, easy read for me. I would highly recommend Food Rebellions! for those seeking to understand the deeper causes of hunger and poverty in the world. Another bonus is that it discusses a range of alternatives to current food policy.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Food Rebellions capably addresses a timely and important subject - but not in a particularly convincing or engaging manner. The body of the book itself is primarily a collection of statistics and citations that do little to draw the reader into the story of the food crisis or the lives of those who hunger for justice. Instead, the book includes individual stories and real world examples in a series of "boxes" that are separated from the body of the text. Because of the size (large),frequency and isolated nature of these "boxes" they quickly become a distraction and ultimately fail to compliment the text as a whole. Integrating the stories into the arguments themselves and helping the reader draw connections between the stories and statistics would have been a worthwhile endeavor - and produced a more readable and persuasive book.

I suspect that the most enthusiastic recipients of this book will be ones who are already well-informed about the issues discussed and sympathetic to the authors' view points. I would recommend this book as a helpful reference/resource on global food issues but not as an introduction or primer to those who wish to learn about them.
