In The Locavore’s Dilemma: In Praise of the 10,000-Mile Diet, the husband-and-wife team of geographer Pierre Desrochers and economist Hiroko Shimizu offer the first book to debunk the locavore perspective. The authors—backed by several inconvenient truths documented by engineers, economists, historians, and nutritionists—discuss why, if implemented as proposed, such a food system can only ever deliver increased social and economic misery, environmental degradation, great food insecurity and poorer nutrition.
