From Jicama to Jackfruit: The Global Political Economy of Food by Kimberly A. Weir

What did you have for breakfast? Did you ever stop to think about the people and steps involved with how your banana, cereal, or energy bar got on your plate or in your backpack? Nearly everyone is a part of the global food system, yet few people are aware of how it operates. Seeing how we are connected with spice farmers, cocoa bean growers, soybean producers, tomato pickers, and tuna fishers not only gives insight into where we fit in the global food chain, but also offers a unique way to understand the aspects and concepts of the global political economy. The book begins by figuring out where readers fit in the global food chain, looking at what affects eating habits and choices, and situating these factors in a global context. Subsequent chapters examine the supply, processing, and sale of food items as a way to consider the different facets of the global political economy, how the global food supply chain works, and what that means for food choices the world over.
