In The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved, author Sandor Ellix Katz profiles grassroots activists who are taking on Big Food, creating meaningful alternatives, and challenging the way many Americans think about food. From community-supported local farmers, community gardeners, and seed saving activists, to underground distribution networks of contraband foods and food resources rescued from the waste stream, this book shows how ordinary people can resist the dominant system, revive community-based food production, and take direct responsibility for their own health and nutrition. Chapter Topics Include: Local and Seasonal Food versus Constant Convenience Consumerism; Seed Saving as a Political Act; Holding Our Ground: Land and Labor Struggles; Slow Food for Cultural Survival; The Raw Underground; Beware the Nutraceutical: Food and Healing; Plant Prohibitions: Laws Against Nature; Vegetarian Ethics and Humane Meat; Feral Foragers: Scavenging and Recycling Food Resources; and Water: The Source of All Life This revolution will not be genetically engineered, pumped up with hormones, covered in pesticides, individually wrapped, or microwaved....This revolution is wholesome, nurturing, and sensual. This revolution reinvigorates local economies. This revolution rescues traditional foods that are in danger of extinction and revives skills that will enable people to survive the inevitable collapse of the unsustainable, globalized, industrial food system.
