Food Bank Nations

Poverty, Corporate Charity and the Right to Food

by Graham Riches

Food Bank Nations

"Against a backdrop of increasing food insecurity in OECD countries, Riches' examination of food banking reveals the extent to which ‘Big Food’ and privatized food charity have well and truly moved into the spaces left by retreating neoliberal governments. Beyond the food drives, celebrity endorsement, smiling volunteers and government legislated tax incentives, this book documents the juggernaut that is global food banking. Despite being a thorn in the side of many ‘primary duty bearers’, rights-based approaches to food offer promise as an effective counterweight to slow the progress of the foodbank juggernaut and reclaim public policy." 

— Dr. Sue Booth, Flinders University, Australia

Linking Sustainability, Business and Fashion

By Paulina Szmydke-Cacciapalle

This has also started to become a concern at the end consumer level, and Denim, being the King of Fashion, is under scrutiny on eco-tox issues. Paulina Szmydke-Cacciapalle provides deep insight into this increasingly topical matter and describes in a very clear way the current challenges and options for a brighter blue denim."

Pathways to Sustainable Agriculture FreeBook

Pathways to Sustainable Agriculture FreeBookThis FreeBook highlights some of the major findings that have emerged over the last decade of the STEPS Centre’s research on sustainable agriculture.

It draws on four books which address three themes central to understanding how pathways emerge in agriculture, and how sustainability, is or indeed is not, generated. The three themes are: framing (how we understand agriculture and its roles in development), practice (how agriculture and agricultural research is carried out, and by whom) and governance (how agriculture is regulated and controlled).
