    1. A good read A bit dry I think I am done with the intellectualizing of local food movements and just want to start doing growing, eaticng, etc it myself Although, I do think the Terra Madre movement is very inmportant and the Manifestos on Food and Seed are essential to propagate These are ideas that need to become widespread This is a quick simple read I recommend it to anyone looking for a short read on the crisis that is our food industry and eating habits The two articles at the end about th [...]


    2. Grandma may not understand the complexities of the internet, but we are the fools who cannot even preserve our summer vegetables so we don t starve in the winter I picked up this book because 1 I think Vandana Shiva is one of the greatest minds of our day 2 I care a lot about the future of food seed 3 The cover art is by Nikki McClure I like her papercuts This book has roots in the Slow Food movement, and is shepherded along by the brilliant words of Vandana Shiva, Michael Pollan, Carlo Petrini, [...]


    3. I was really excited to read this book The table of contents appears as a who s who of food justice activism Vandana Shiva, Michael Pollan, Carlo Petrini, Prince Charles Prince Charles The book can be discussed in 3 different parts The first is a collection of short essays, probably speeches While they probably had the audience standing and cheering when read forcefully in public, as a published item, they are shockingly un substantive They are repetitive for anyone familiar with food justice is [...]


    4. Just look at the list of authors Vandana Shiva, Michael Pollan, Prince Charles, Carlo Petrini This book should be on every Slow Foodie s bookshelf The two manifestos are the main focus of the book, but to provide some context there are stories from Terra Madre Slow Food event in Italy and by two people regarding the future of food in the US.While this book isn t convincing in and of itself, as seen by most of the other reviews, it is nice to have as an ancillary guide while reading other books e [...]


    5. I really enjoyed this book I m new to the food sovereignty sustainability movement,but it s something that I am very passionate about I suspect that someone who was an expert in this area might be a little bored by this book and it doesn t quite provide enough background for someone brand new to it But for me, it was perfect.The book is divided into three sections The first is most likely a collection of speeches from the Terra Madre gathering that took place in Turin, Italy in October 2004 Thes [...]


    6. The manifestos are substanceless There is nothing really new to the rest of the book either Prince Charles provides classist analysis, and the last two essays are particularly terrible in the authors fixations on obesity, and the poor ignorant who just don t have the financial means knowledge about food to be able to get good local food Audience Jamey Lionette writes, L et s understand what Grandma was doing and realize that she was a lot smarter than we are today She may not understand the comp [...]


    7. this book came out of a slow food conference held in italy the manifestos one on food one on seed are pretty boring to read, but they represent a consensus of sustainable food activists from a bunch of western countries a couple of global south countries there are 2 essays near the end that i really appreciated, one about sustainable food in the US what we re going to have to give up to get it e.g the convenience of shopping at whole foods , and the other by michael pollen about why poor folks a [...]


    8. If you re already familiar with agribusiness, Monsanto and other ridiculous facts of food in our world, this book will not enlighten you too much For those just becoming aware of these issues, it can serve as a good introduction The two manifestos contained mostly common sense recommendations, making me realize again what a screwed up world we live in that these are considered revolutionary ideas The chapter on food in the US was also quite useful for it s well rounded discussion of cheap food a [...]


    9. So the ideas aren t exacty new but it is always good to read people who appreciate the value and true cost of real food and talk about topics like seed saving collectives, etc I liked jamey lionette s focus on local low food miles and eating seasonally which is something that i always say i am going to do but then i see bananas and think about how much i love them What is nice is that it takes a complex international issue and talks about it simply Would like to read about agricultural policy a [...]


    10. From food, all creatures are produced Beings are born from food, when born they live by food, on being deceased, they enter into food Taitreya Upanishad, as quoted by Vandana Shiva This quote seems to be the springboard for this short collection of essays on the hypocrisies of food production, which, one could argue, form the roots of most of the world s ills An interesting group of people write Michael Pollan, Carlo Petrini of the Slow Food movement , and even Prince Charles The Manifestos part [...]


    11.

    12. Most of the content was already familiar, so it didn t blow me away, but it is nice to know that these people are getting together and writing these manifestos Also, the book is a convenient pocket size, good for when you re traveling Someday maybe they will get some notice from the people in charge, especially the parts about the rights of farmers to save exchange their own seeds.


    13. Once again, a book heavy on what is wrong with the world but light on what we can do about it I enjoyed the perspective of the Terra Madre group and their desires for food and seed diversity and freedom It was definitely thought provoking, but I didn t really glean anything about what I can do about the problem.


    14. great little livre to read articles from love the compilation timeless and looking forward to sharing my copy with others So happy I was able to pick the copy up at a live talk in the maritimes The energy enthusiam criticism messages there were amazing.


    15. Although I tend to be wary of manifestos in general, the essays in this book were delightfully informative and well written For any Boston area readers, the piece by Jamey Lionette is fun to read because he addresses specifically the problem of local eating in Boston.


    16. Too much rhetoric, not enough substance, and it falls back on the old substitution of democracy instead of revolution that abolishes capitalism The necessity of the latter is shown in newsandletters issues 2008.


    17. About the state of Genetically Modified foods and the consequences behind the transitioning of power from the citizens to corporations Very interesting Shiva and her contributors write from the heart, and bring a global perspective to food issues.


    18. I really like the idea of living democracy It s what I m all about, but I never had a way to name it Having her definition at hand helps me talk to other people about my beliefs.


    19. This book was used as the basis for a foods class at UC Berkeley lectures can be found on the UCB tube page.





    20. Everybody should know about this Manifesto These points should be tought at school and above all put in action in the society.
