Seeking Food Rights Nation Inequality and Repression in Uzbekistan

Author: Nancy Rosenberger
Publisher: Cengage Learning
ISBN: 9781111301491
Release Date: 2011-02-02
Genre: Social Science

Rosenberger’s case study focuses on food systems to Central Asia and Uzbekistan, ultimately awakening readers to the fact that how we share food in our households, communities, nations, and the world fundamentally shapes and reshapes the contours of the globe for its lands and its peoples. Rosenberger describes her aims as multifold: to introduce readers to Uzbekistan, a country in a region where political and economic currents challenge us to reach a better understanding; to give readers practice in thinking intensively through the meaning of food rights in a certain time and place; and, to use food systems as a means of alerting readers to channels for considering power differences (whether based on class, ethnic, gender, or politics) that exist within a nation. Upon completion of the book, readers will be stimulated to think more deeply about our food systems on local and global levels.
