Tomatoland, Third Edition: From Harvest of Shame to Harvest of Hope (Paperback)
Three-time James Beard Award-winner Barry Estabrook’s completely revised third edition of his hard-hitting 2011 exposé, Tomatoland, includes a new foreword by Eric Schlosser and four new chapters with startling updates.
Four entirely new chapters take up where the current edition leaves off to tell the story behind what president Bill Clinton calls “the most astonishing thing politically in the world we’re living in today.” Estabrook reveals how a rag-tag group of migrant tomato pickers in Florida convinced the world’s largest restaurant chains and food retailers to join forces to create a model for labor justice, and then took the necessary steps to make sure that the model really works, not only in Florida, but around the world.
The book includes a new foreword by journalist and author Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation).
