Food Ethics is an emerging course area in many academic departments for good reason. Students are interested in the issues and confront them to some degree several times a day. There is a growing realization that food ethics are at core of many other critical environmental issues, including climate change, population and migration, appropriate technology, development and capitalism, as well as pollution. This anthology includes twenty-one readings designed to provide a basic reader for a Food Ethics class or to act as an academic companion text along side one of the many mass market titles addressing these issues. The readings cover issues such as genetically modified foods, animal rights, population and consumption, pollution, centralized versus local production, vegetarianism and more. Introductions and study questions help students to prepare for reflection and discussion on these significant and noteworthy issues.
