About this product
- DescriptionFood Regimes and Agrarian Questions extends the original conception of the food regime, formulated by Harriet Friedmann and Philip McMichael, detailing new dimensions of the succession of imperial, intensive and corporate food regimes. Developing the methodological contributions of food regime analysis, McMichael re-examines the agrarian question historically and its present-day implications. He introduces regional interpretations of the food regime, incorporating gender, labour, financial, ecological and nutritional dimensions into his analysis. Finally, McMichael explores the relationships between contemporary food, energy, climate and financial crises and food regime restructuring, which includes such topics as agrofuels, land grabbing, the bioecomy, agro-security mercantilism and the food sovereignty movement.
- Author BiographyPhilip McMichael is a professor in the Department of Development Sociology at Cornell University and the author of Development and Social Change: A Global Perspective (2012), and Settlers and the Agrarian Question: Foundations of Capitalism in Colonial Australia (1984).
