Review: "In recent years, the integrity of food production and distribution has become an issue of wide social concern. The media report frequently on cases of food contamination as well as on the risks of hormones and cloning. Journalists, documentary filmmakers, and activists have had their say, but until now a survey of the latest research on the history of the modern food-provisioning system - the network that connects farms and fields to supermarkets and the dining table - has been unavailable. In Food Chains, Warren Belasco and Roger Horowitz present a collection of fascinating case studies that reveal the historical underpinnings and institutional arrangements that compose this system."--Jacket.
