The sociology of agriculture and related disciplines have provided useful insights into the restructuring process of agri-food systems. However, the contribution is usually divided between political economy of agriculture and sociocultural analyses of production and consumption of food. This book integrates both analyses into a single analytical framework. In doing so, the author offers an original contribution by skilfully broadens the theoretical framework developed by the sociologist Manuel Castells on his work The Network Society'. This book answers compelling questions associated with institutional and organisational aspects as well as social meaning and identity, all of which influence relationships between production and consumption of agri-food commodities. In particular, this book analyses the transformation of the Australian beef industry and shed lights on the new trends in the restructuring of the global agri-food sector. The analysis and research findings in this book are especially helpful for social scientists concern with changes power relations along the agri-food chain, current supermarket power, and recent regulation and governance of agri-food systems.

Food Security in Australia
171,19 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book considers the ability and capacity of the food supply system in Australia to provide food security for the ever-increasing domestic and international population in the face of growing challenges in production, resource supply and failures within the food system itself. Although Australia is a net food exporting country, domestic food insecurity exists and will increase as food prices rise in the coming decades. An overview of the food supply system highlights the main challenges that are determining the future. Many of these challenges can be resolved by the Australian government, but others are in the hands of global governance to which Australia can only adapt. This book sheds light on the challenges and discusses the prospects for developing more sustainable and resilient future food systems in Australia. In addition, it covers food security and sovereignty issues under the heading of "food equity and access,""food production, policy and trade," and "impacts of land use planning on agriculture."The unique features of the book include the following:- Most literature on food security pertains to developing countries. By way of contrast, this book explores food security in a developed nation (Australia) that seemingly should not have food security issues. The topics covered in the book are relevant to other developed nations with growing populations and resource management challenges.- The book chapters are written by specialists to paint a comprehensive picture of the political, social, economic and environmental issues that give rise to food insecurity, and the challenges these issues present to the security of the food system in coming decades. The overall organization of the book uses a theoretically informed and multi-disciplinary approach. This enables a critical and in-depth analysis of food security by outlining the key challenges as well as prospects for the development of more sustainable and resilient agri-food systems.- The three principal topics in the book are dealt with by a multi-disciplinary team of authors in a way that teases out diverse points of view illustrating the complexity of food security. Author disciplines include health and nutrition, agriculture, ethics, social science, law, and practitioners managing food aid programs.- The book shows how food security relates to many technical, social and moral issues in society and how it is possible to develop successful programs to improve food security.
