Paul Robert's in his book The End of Food scrutinizes the food industry, documenting our eating patterns, the global economy which supports it and the ethics behind it. He maintains that the quanttity and quallity of food that we take for granted in the West can't last much longer. The dream of plenty is in fact a nithmare as it denies the nature of food as seasonal, squashable and unpredictable and in the long run unsustainable and destructive. He advances the theory that food production is run by monopolistic companies interested in the suppression of individuality and free choice.
