Food and the City explores the physical, social, and political relations between the production of food and urban settlements. Edited by Dorothée Imbert, its thirteen essays discuss the multiple scales and ideologies of productive landscapes--from market gardens in sixteenth-century Paris to polder planning near mid-twentieth century Amsterdam to opportunistic agriculture in today's Global South--and underscore the symbiotic connection between productive landscape and urban form across times and geographies.
