We welcome book reviews that offer a thoughtful engagement of food-related research, policy, knowledge and action. We are particularly interested in reviews of manuscripts that would appeal to geographers who study all aspects of food from across the breadth of geography’s sub-disciplines.
We ask that reviews provide:
- A careful summary of the book’s central features, including its subject matter, organization, and how its argument is structured; and
- An analysis of how the book contributes to food studies, including any perceived shortcomings.
Potential Book Reviewers
We are interested in book reviews from food scholars, as well as those operating within food advocacy and/or food policy circles. Please contact the book review editor Richard J. Nunes, with any questions or book suggestions, and thank you for taking the time to contribute!
