Reviews

The greatest strength of this book is its use of food trucks as a lens through which to analyze the racialized political economies of changing foodscapes. The historical connections between immigrant food vendors and creative-class entrepreneurs, and their differential treatment by city officials, are resoundingly clear, as are the abilities of non-profit organizations, community development corporations, and vendors themselves to mitigate and resist these disparities. -Antipode The greatest strength of this book is its use of food trucks as a lens through which to analyze the racialized political economies of changing foodscapes.
