Summary Ten years ago, sustainable agriculture was not considered a viable option within the food and agriculture industry. Today, it has become imperative, as resources are depleted, toxins enter the food chain, farmers lose their land, and children go hungry. Sustainability is the new framework for addressing these issues, and is promoted by agriculturalists, researchers, and visionaries alike. In this important work, fifteen leading scholars of food and agriculture present a detailed description of the social, economic, and political aspects of the sustainability concept
