The ways in which we produce and consume foods have profound effects on natural and social environments. Witness the continuing controversy over issues as divergent as chemical residues, organic standards, genetically modified foods, 'mad cow' disease and the destruction of rainforest to supply the world with cheap hamburger mince.

Consuming Foods, Sustaining Environments sets out to unravel the complex threads linking that production and consumption activities that revolve around food through a series of [refereed] research articles. Contributors come from a diverse range of disciplinary perspectives including sociology, geography, anthropology, history, agriculture and economics.
