Abstract

Presents a detailed description of the social, economic, and political aspects of the sustainability concept. Confronts the theoretical and practical issues of transformation to sustainable agriculture systems. Acknowledges the importance of looking at sustainability at the farm-level but moves on to ask fundamental questions about what sustainability means. Part I considers: sociopolitical aspects; the political ecology of sustainable development; regenerative food production systems; moral philosophy. Part II considers: sustainable agriculture in the US; concepts, contradictions and conflicts in sustainable development; sustainability and the rural poor. Part III considers: alternative food regimes for the future; scale of sustainable development; production and consumption linkages; sustainable agriculture policy agenda in the US. -C.Barrow
