A couple of new purchases to take me through the next few weeks. My kind of 'holiday reading'...
Food security is an area of geography which has a link to everyone (we all have to eat), and can also lead on to discussions of other key concepts. Carolyn Steel's 'Hungry City' explores the issues involved. Check out the MINISITE here for a little 'taster' and a mini-blog, which has details on each chapter and a mini podcast to listen to.


Also got the latest from Taras Grescoe, who wrote one of my favourite books: "The End of Elsewhere". This one is called "Bottomfeeder" and the vehicle for the travels here is an exploration of sustainability in fishing, and the impact of our appetite for fish.
Also best wishes to Dan Ellison, who's currently in Mexico for URBAN EARTH.

Oh... yet another book I am going to have to buy!!! About to start writing a new unit on food, so this looks like it will be interesting and useful.

Have a good summer!
