Food production: Local and Global

After reading, it seems, so many of the current books on local, sustainable, and responsible farming, gardening, and eating I have at last been introduced to an author who articulates a nuanced mid-ground between the ideals of the locavore movement and the necessities of global food production!  

JUST FOOD: WHERE LACAVORES GET IT WRONG AND HOW WE CAN TRULY EAT RESPONSIBLY by James E. McWilliams.  Little, Brown 2009.

Half way through it I have already underscored and commented on more pages than pretty much all the other books combined.  More reaction to follow.
