Hi all, I've just submitted for validation another nonfiction book-- Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System by Raj Patel I read as I scan and I've corrected all errors I found. Headers are stripped; page numbers and chapter titles protected. There are a lot of non-English words and names to drag down a spell check or ranked spelling. I've verified most of them. [From the Back Cover[ HOW CAN STARVING PEOPLE ALSO BE OBESE? WHY DOES EVERYTHING CONTAIN SOY? WHAT'S THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PETROCHEMICALS, BIOFUELS, AND THE PRICE OF FOOD? IT'S A PERVERSE FACT: There are more people starving in the world than ever before (800 million) while there are also more people overweight (1 billion). To find out how we got to this point and what we can do about it, Raj Patel launched a comprehensive investigation into the global food network. It took him from the colossal supermarkets of California to India's wrecked paddy- fields and Africa's bankrupt coffee farms, while along the way he ate genetically engineered soybeans and dodged flying objects on the protestor-packed streets of South Korea. What he found was shocking: from the false choices given us by supermarkets to a global epidemic of farmer suicides and the real reasons for famine in Asia and Africa. Yet he also found great cause for hope- in international social movements working to create a more democratic, sustainable, and joyful food system. Going beyond ethical consumerism, Patel explains, from seed to store to plate, the steps to regain control of the global food economy, stop the exploitation of both farmers and consumers, and rebalance global sustenance.
