Summary A globe-trotting expos?e of our modern agricultural system. From struggling fishermen and long-distance truckers, to agronomists and multi-national corporate executives. Presents a sobering portrait of the people who define the contemporary food industry, where the constant pursuit of profit takes precedence over the health of the workers, the hungry, and the environment. Reveals the distressing problems of the industrialized world food system and what world hunger has to do with us. Nearly 1 billion of the 7 billion people on Earth are starving, but the food produced could feed 12 billion people.
