Warnock's book is an attempt to explain within the context of the global food market why famine, malnutrition, poverty and disease are the flip side of affluence and waste. He examines the political question of who controls the production, processing and marketing of food products and the social and environmtntal impact on societies. He calls for a just food system that recognizes the needs of the people not just the profit demand of the corporate sector .
