Food Justice Now! (Joshua Sbicca)Joshua Sbicca will be at Boulder Book Store on Monday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. for a presentation and signing of his new book, Food Justice Now!: Deepening the Roots of Social Struggle.

 

Food Justice Now! charts a path from food activism to social justice activism that integrates the two. In an engrossing, historically grounded, and ethnographically rich narrative, Joshua Sbicca argues that food justice is more than a myopic focus on food, allowing scholars and activists alike to investigate the causes behind inequities and evaluate and implement political strategies to overcome them.

 

"By highlighting sites where justice, rather than food, is the primary motivator of social action, Joshua Sbicca’s timely and important book takes the conversation about food justice exactly where it needs to go." —Julie Guthman, co-editor of The New Food Activism: Opposition, Cooperation, and Collective Action

 

"Sbicca sees food justice as a universal cause that can unite and inspire broader social change, and his book provides a blueprint for activists who agree." —Civil Eats

 

"Sbicca challenges scholars and activists to locate the true causes of inequities and develop political strategies or social actions to overcome these causes." —Food Tank
