Cities and Agriculture: Developing Resilient Urban Food Systems by Henk de Zeeuw and Pay Drechsel (Eds.)
In an age when we are inundated with information, efforts that streamline that information—by sifting kernels of wheat from the chaff—are precious. Our reviews are intended to assist CFS readers faced with a growing body of material relevant to food studies. However, the standard book review process is ill-suited to the increasingly common edited volume, with large numbers of chapters written by multiple authors. A single review struggles to capture and reflect on the distinct themes and copious information that such volumes typically contain. We are experimenting with alternative formats. This installment was initially conceived as a “community book review”, where we sought reviewers with relevant experience to tackle the material in each of the chapters. Ten volunteers stepped forward, and even participated in a round of blind reviews of each other’s work. The result is a collaborative effort that provides depth of analysis for each of the 15 chapters in this book, and some lightly ground grains of wheat for your digestion.
