وصف كتب مصر
Food has emerged as a political topic par excellence. It is increasingly
involved in controversies at a transnational level, in relation to issues of
access, dominance, trade and control in a shared global environment. At the
same time, innovations in biotechnology and animal domestication have brought
ethics to the forefront of food debates. Thus, we live in an era when the
ethics and the politics of food must come together. This book addresses the
ethics and the politics of food from a broad range of academic disciplines,
including sociology, philosophy, nutrition, anthropology, ethics, political
science and history. The chapters expose novel problem areas, and suggest
guidelines for approaching them. Topics range from fundamental issues in
philosophy to sustainability, from consumer trust in food to ethical toolkits.
Transparency, power and responsibility are key concerns, and special attention
is given to animal welfare, emerging technologies in food production and marine
domestication. Together, the chapters represent a wide range of academic
responses to the fundamental dilemmas posed by food production and food
consumption in the contemporary world.
