I am speaking at the Con Edison Science, Technology, Energy, Environment, and Math (STEEM) Distinguished Lecturer series on “Food Politics 2020: Food Industry Influence on Nutrition Research and Practice.” It’s from 12:15-1:30 pm at the Science Building, C-201. Details are here.
Weekend reading: Supermarket USA
Shane Hamilton. Supermarket USA: Food and Power in the Cold War Farms Race. Yale University Press, 2018.
I did a blurb for this one:
Who knew that supermarkets, of all things, were key elements of U.S. free-enterprise, anti-Soviet, Cold War propaganda. Hamilton fully explains how “farm wars” led directly to today’s international industrial agribusinesses. This superb book is a must-read.
