The local food movement is one of the most active of current civil engagement social movements. This work presents primary evidence from over 900 documents, interviews, and participant observations, and provides the first descriptive history of local food movement national policy achievements in the US, from 1976 to 2013, and in the UK, from 1991 to 2013, together with reviews of both the American and British local food movements. It provides a US-UK comparative context, significantly updating earlier comparison of American, British and European farm and rural policies.
The comparative perspective shows that, over time, more effective strategies for national policy change required social-movement building strategies, such as collaborative policy coalitions, capacity-building for smaller organizations, and policy entrepreneurship for joining together separate rural, farming, food, and health interests. In contrast, narrowly-defined single issue campaigns often undermined long-term policy change, even if short-term wins emerged. By profiling interviews of American and English movement leaders, policymakers, and funders, the book demonstrates that democratic participation in food policy is best supported when funders incentivize groups to work together and overcome their differences.
'Judgemental Afterthoughts' brings to a 'judgemental' head the loose quartet of aphoristic books beginning with 'The Free Testament' (2003), and has been subtitled 'As Testamentary Evidence of a Free Genius', since it rather departs from the terminological bounds set by the aforementioned book, not to mention the two intervening ones, 'Revelationary Afterthoughts' (2003) and 'Revolutionary Afterthoughts' (2003-4), as it explores, in some detail, the use and applicability of common slang and verb-noun expletives from a comprehensively exacting philosophical standpoint, with many interesting and novel conclusions, some of which might well contribute towards undermining the mindless alacrity with which certain uneducated persons go about denigrating others in carnally reductionist terms! Consequently the author has, in a sense, 'judged' such terms, however irrational their common usage, and, we trust, brought some logical sense to bear on them, thereby removing their habitual usage from the pit of vulgar or obscene slang in which they tend, with unthinking people, to languish and fester. But that is not all he has done in this highly demanding book; for the reader will soon discern that John O'Loughlin has a gift for parables and metaphorical irony which should shed some light on recent history and the contemporary political scene most especially, thereby preparing the ground for progressive, radical change in the decades and centuries to come.
