From our foraging hunter-gatherer ancestors to the enormous appetites of modern cities, food has shaped our bodies and homes, our politics and trade, and our climate. But by forgetting its value, we have drifted into a way of life that threatens our planet and ourselves.
Drawing on insights from philosophy, history, architecture, literature, politics and science, as well as stories of the farmers, designers and economists who are remaking our relationship with food, Sitopia is a provocative and exhilarating vision for change, and how to thrive on our crowded, overheating planet. Carolyn Steel will be at Libreria presenting ideas from her inspiring and deeply thoughtful new book.
