Alternative agrifood movements: Patterns of convergence and divergence by Douglas, H. Constance, Marie-Christine Renard, and Marta G. Rivera-Ferre (Eds.)

Keywords: alternative, AAFN, food justice, food movements


The introduction to this volume offers a concise overview of the history and state of AAFN scholarship, making it a great early read for newcomers to the field. Drawing together experiences of global South food justice movements and global North alternative food movements is welcomed and a critical foundation to an engaged scholarship that can help unite food movements. I hope we can expand such comparisons. However, the book’s conclusion seems to iron over the wrinkles and messiness with sweeping generalizations, thereby eclipsing possibilities.
