The World is Not for Sale Reviews

"The peasant leader regarded as a hero in the battle to save France from fast food and free trade is bringing his revolt across the Channel to protest against the 'perversion' of British agricultural policy." - Sunday Times "Naomi Klein's No Logo, Eric Schlosser's Fast Food Nation, The Silent Takeover By Noreena Hertz and now Bove's book are the bibles of the anti-capitalist movement." - Guardian "Today MacDonald's, tomorrow the world." - Times "Critics frequently accuse the opponents of economic globalization of not presenting any alternative... The World is Not For Sale couldn't prove them more wrong." - Red Pepper "... a call to action, and a timely reminder of the principle: 'Think globally, act locally.'" - Food Magazine "... an engaging account of two twentieth-century heroes who, in their fight for sustainable agriculture, have embraced the larger vision for a more just, healthy, and harmonic global community." - clamour magazine "In tune with the movement for which it will become a core text." - Independent "A vivid testament to the extraordinary potential when local communities, heroic direct actionists and employees come together I creative alliances against corporate power." - New Statesman "It is refreshing to read informed argument by people who are both left wing and who, as working farmers, know what they are talking about." - Socialist Review
