SAGE Encyclopedia of Food Issues

Description

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Food Issues explores the topic of food across multiple disciplines within the social sciences and related areas including business, consumerism, marketing, and environmentalism. In contrast to the existing reference works on the topic of food that tend to fall into the categories of cultural perspectives, this carefully balanced academic encyclopedia focuses on social and policy aspects of food production, safety, regulation, labeling, marketing, distribution, and consumption. A sampling of general topic areas covered includes Agriculture, Labor, Food Processing, Marketing and Advertising, Trade and Distribution, Retail and Shopping, Consumption, Food Ideologies, Food in Popular Media, Food Safety, Environment, Health, Government Policy, and Hunger and Poverty. This encyclopedia introduces students to the fascinating, and at times contentious, and ever-so-vital field involving food issues.

Key Features:

• Contains approximately 500 signed entries concluding with cross-references and suggestions for further readings

• Organized A-to-Z with a thematic “Reader’s Guide” in the front matter grouping related entries by general topic area

• Provides a Resource Guide and a detailed and comprehensive Index along with robust search-and-browse functionality in the electronic edition.
