Agriculture and Food in Crisis, May 5

By | April 28, 2011

Please join us at Black Sheep Books on Thursday, May 5th 7pm for a conversation with Fred Magdoff and Brian Tokar: Agriculture and Food in Crisis

Food prices are soaring to record levels. Why? And why do so many people not have access to this basic necessity? Join scholar/activists Fred Magdoff and Brian Tokar as they examine these questions and more, drawing on the insights collected in their new edited volume, “Agriculture and Food in Crisis: Conflict, Resistance, and Renewal.”

Fred Magdoff is professor emeritus at the University of Vermont and adjunct professor at Cornell University. He has written extensively on soil fertility, ecological approaches to agriculture, and political economy, and is co-author of The ABCs of the Economic Crisis (with Michael D.Yates) and The Great Financial Crisis (with John Bellamy Foster).

Brian Tokar is a long-time activist and author, and current director of the Institute for Social Ecology based in Plainfield, Vermont. He is the author of Toward Climate Justice, The Green Alternative, and Earth for Sale and lectures widely on a variety of environmental and political topics.
