Reviews

"Extremely well organized and provides numerous examples of causes and consequences of food insecurity without casting value judgements. McDonald does a nice job of defining his terms and setting limits for the scope of his discussion." Choice "A succinct and accessible overview of an issue rising ever further up the global political agenda." International Affairs "In this crisply written, insightful book, McDonald brings our notions of security up to date by demonstrating how current global food systems undermine the world's ability to provide sufficient, safe, and nutritious food for everyone. Timely, sophisticated, and necessary, Food Security explains how this leaves all of us more vulnerable and offers important ideas for what to do about it." Paul Wapner, associate professor and director of the Global Environmental Politics Program at the American University "Bryan McDonald must be read if one wants to understand the complexity of the global food system and its sweeping impacts on human security." Erika Weinthal, Duke University "McDonald breaks free of the disciplinary and sectoral shackles that so commonly plague analyses of key global challenges like food security. His explicit integrated approach to impacts and implications for food security makes this contribution more robust and more useful to a wider set of actors." Geoff Dabelko, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars "Bryan McDonald's excellent narrative of how global changes are impacting food security provides a valuable addition to better understanding the larger changes in the nature of security, and offers wise guidance for improving food security." Kenneth Rutherford, director of the Center for International Stabilization and Recovery and professor of political science at James Madison University
