Well-meant initiatives such as Barack Obama’s Feed the Future and “buy local” efforts will not end the world’s food crisis, according to a University of Guelph professor.
Evan Fraser, a new University  of Guelph geography professor and agricultural expert, explores why such one-solution plans historically fail in his just-published book, Empires of Food: Feast, Famine and the Rise and Fall of Civilization.
Written with U.S. journalist Andrew Rimas, the book looks at how and why human culture depends on food, what happens when a culture runs out of it and what can be expected in years to come.
