Fw: [ACGA] New Book on Food Security Issues


By Bob Gottlieb,
Co-Founder and Board member of the Community Food Security Coalition

Many of you know Bob Gottlieb who has been a leader in the food and
environmental movements for many years. Bob has a wonderful and exciting new
book that is just now hitting the streets. It's called "Environmentalism
Unbound: Exploring New Pathways for Change" and it ties together a lot of
work that Bob and others have been involved with over the past several
including his insights about the central place of the food system and food
politics in environmental and social change agendas.

Bob, as many of you know, was a co-founder of the Community Food Security
Coalition and directed the Seeds of Change study when he was at UCLA that
helped launch my own involvement in the food movement. His new book is
invaluable for all of us who are grappling with issues of globalization and
the need to take back the food system as well as how the food,
labor, and social justice movements can come together through a common
and agenda.

You can order Environmentalism Unbound directly from MIT Press
(1-800-356-0343) or through on line ordering at (mitpress-orders.mit.edu).
ask for it in your local independent book store.

Here's a description of Environmentalism Unbound and a list of chapters in
the book.

Part I  Breaking Boundaries
1. Environmentalism Bounded
2. Livable Regions and Cleaner Production: Linking Environmental Justice and
Pollution Prevention
Part II Exploring Pathways
3. Dry Cleaning's Dilemma and Opportunity: Overcoming Chemical Dependencies
and Creating a Community of Interests
4. Janitors and Justice: Industry Restructuring, chemical Exposures and
redefining Work
5. Global, Local and Food Insecure: the Restructuring of the Food System
6. The Politics of Food: Agendas and Movement for Change
7. Pathways to Change: A Conclusion

" According to Gottlieb, the environmental movement's narrow conception of
environment has isolated it from vital issues of everyday life, such as
workplace safety, healthy communities, and food security, that are often
viewed separately as industrial, community, or agricultural concerns. .
Gottlieb focuses on three compelling examples of this new approach to social
and environmental change. The first involves a small industry (dry cleaning)
and the debate over pollution prevention approaches; the second involves a
set of products (janitorial supplies) that may be hazardous to workers; and
the third explores the obstacles and opportunities presented by community or
regional approaches to food supply in the face of an increasingly globalized
food system."
