Praise For The New Food Activism: Opposition, Cooperation, and Collective Action…
"A shrewdly curated call to action... By depicting the diversity of opposition to conventional food systems and with keen depth of discussion, Alkon and Guthman stoke the embers of the change that has been smoldering for decades within the food system, demonstrating means of resistance that all new activists should emulate."
— Graduate Journal of Food Studies
"The New Food Activism is both relevant and timely to ongoing academic conversations about food justice and the alternative food movement within the United States. . . . While this book adds to the critique of the alternative food movement by highlighting the ways in which it is apolitical and nonstrategic, its biggest impact is the illustration of the power of activism that is strategic, political, and collaborative."
