In this groundbreaking contribution toMoreCurrent discussions of the ethics around alternative food movements--concepts such as local, organic, and fair trade--tend to focus on their growth and significance in advanced capitalist societies.

In this groundbreaking contribution to critical food studies, editors Yuson Jung, Jakob A. Klein, and Melissa L. Caldwell explore what constitutes ethical food and ethical eating in socialist and formerly socialist societies. With essays by anthropologists, sociologists, and geographers, this politically nuanced volume offers insight into the origins of alternative food movements and their place in todays global economy. Collectively, the essays cover discourses on food and morality- the material and social practices surrounding production, trade, and consumption- and the political and economic power of social movements in Bulgaria, China, Cuba, Lithuania, Russia, and Vietnam.

Scholars and students will gain important historical and anthropological perspective on how the dynamics of state-market-citizen relations continue to shape the ethical and moral frameworks guiding food practices around the world.
