Carolyn SteelLe ventre des villes, comment l'alimentation façonne nos vies
Food does not magically find its way onto our plates. Feeding cities has always required gargantuan efforts and had repercussions on places and ecosystems, especially in a globalized system. Our eating habits shape the city, as well as the surrounding countryside. Carolyn Steel offers a fascinating insight into the evolution of cities through the lens of food: through the ages and around the world, she follows the journey of food to the city, from the market or supermarket to the kitchen, and from the table to the landfill or sewer. With more than two-thirds of humanity living in cities by 2050, the subject is a hot one: how to feed the city of tomorrow? In a clear and colourful style, the author analyses this ethical and ecological question, and gives suggestions for rethinking our cities and their hinterlands, and for designing them better, so that we can live in harmony.
