all over the world met for the first time together at Terra Madre-an event billed as "a convocation of world food communities."Since that historic first meeting, Terra Madre has grown into what has been called "the greatest multinational" on earth-one that links producers, cooks, academics, and consumers together based on a basic set of shared policies and values, including a profound respect for diversity, both natural and cultural.The Terra Madre networks offer concrete, appropriately scaled solutions for some of our most vexing problems that are destroying farmers, wiping out cultures, and degrading both our environment and our health. In the future, Carlo Petrini argues, the small farmers and artisan food producers of Terra Madre will be the leading players in the third Industrial Revolution-a revolution that runs on clean, sustainable energy rather than steam power or fossil-fuel electricity.In this provocative and lucid book, Petrini explores the roots of our current problems and offers a framework for hope. Terra Madre brings politics and poetry together in a joyful, multicultural chorus of voices. If we listen closely to their collective wisdom, there is time yet to save the world-one farm and one village at a time.
