This book has two main goals. The first goal is to encourage critical thinking by explaining the key concepts for understanding the problems and potential solutions for the challenges facing our agrifood systems. The second is to demonstrate how the author has applied these concepts in his own thinking about agrifood systems and to share what he has concluded about the problems and solutions based on his own research and values. These two goals are synergistic, in that if the first is achieved, readers will be able to critique the author's conclusions on their own. A central conclusion is that small-scale, traditionally based, locally oriented, low-external-input agrifood systems are an important resource for the future.
