I can't think of anything that summarizes the themes of my new book more than this short article from "cities" section of TheAtlantic.com.
Because if we strip away all the blather about eating local, antibiotics or not, GMOs or not, "feeding the world," etc. --- all that blather boils down to logistics and food-dependent populations. "Food dependent" meaning: urbanites, who by definition do produce their own food.
So: short, readable (maybe 1,000 words versus the roughly 100,000 words in my book). Take a look.
