'Eat Local, Taste Global: How Ethnocultural Food Reaches our Tables' has significance for local and international development

Dear Colleagues,


Eat Local, Taste Global: How Ethnocultural Food Reaches Our Tables, available in early Sept., shows how the demand for ethnocultural vegetables on the part of Toronto’s South Asian, Chinese, and Afro-Caribbean Canadians is at odds with the corporate
food regime. How does that regime affect the local food movement and ethnic groups’ access to their preferred foods? This book addresses that question and suggests that the protection of ethnic and national food security and sovereignty strengthens immigrant
integration while producing healthy crossover effects for other Canadians.

Glen Filson and Bamidele Adekunle

TR: A new book not to be missed: "Against Colonization and Rural Dispossession: Local Resistance in South & East Asia, the Pacific & Africa"

Dear colleagues,

Here’s a new book that you might find very stimulating and engaging! It offers a range of critical perspectives and case studies on land dispossession
and contemporary rural resistance in the Global South.
