Civil society organizations are among the most vociferous critics of the modern food system. Yet even after decades of campaigns, governments have largely failed to address health and sustainability issues in an effective way. This volume showcases the research of experts from multiple disciplines who argue that solutions lie not just in lobbying elected officials but in initiatives at the subparliamentary level. Real change will come, they argue, when advocacy groups develop innovative strategies capable of influencing decision makers more resistant to public pressure: business lobbies well connected to government agencies, middle managers, and ministries unused to collaborating across departmental mandates.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book brings together an impressive group of diverse, multidisciplinary scholars and practitioners who provide an insightful portrayal of the intricacies of policy-making in the agriculture and food sectors -- particularly in terms of identifying where the power lies. This topic will only become more important with growing concerns about food price crises, land grabs, food safety, climate change, rural decline, and related trends affecting food security and environmental and health crises, domestically and globally.
- Steffanie Scott, Department of Geography and Environmental Management, University of Waterloo
