Mexican-Origin Foods, Foodways, and Social Movements: Decolonial Perspectives by Devon Peña (Editor); Luz Calvo (Editor); Pancho McFarland (Editor); Gabriel R. Valle (Editor)This collection of new essays offers groundbreaking perspectives on the ways that food and foodways serve as an element of decolonization in Mexican-origin communities. The writers here take us from multigenerational acequia farmers, who trace their ancestry to Indigenous families in place well before the Oñate Entrada of 1598, to tomorrow's transborder travelers who will be negotiating entry into the United States. Throughout, we witness the shifting mosaic of Mexican-origin foods and foodways from Chiapas to Alaska. Global food systems are also considered from a critical agroecological perspective, which takes into account the ways colonialism affects native biocultural diversity, ecosystem resilience, and equality across species and generations.
Eating the Landscape: American Indian Stories of Food, Identity, and Resilience by Enrique Salmón; Enrique Salmón"Eating is not only a political act, it is also a cultural act that reaffirms one's identity and worldview," Enrique Salmón writes in Eating the Landscape. Traversing a range of cultures, including the Tohono O'odham of the Sonoran Desert and the Rarámuri of the Sierra Tarahumara, the book is an illuminating journey through the southwest United States and northern Mexico. Salmón weaves his historical and cultural knowledge as a renowned Indigenous ethnobotanist with stories American Indian farmers have shared with him to illustrate how traditional Indigenous foodways - from the cultivation of crops to the preparation of meals - are rooted in a time-honored understanding of environmental stewardship.

Cultivating Food Justice: Race, Class, and Sustainability by Alison Hope Alkon (Editor); Julian Agyeman (Editor)A growing food movement urges us to support sustainable agriculture by eating fresh food produced on local family farms. But many low-income neighborhoods and communities of color have been systematically deprived of access to healthy and sustainable food. These communities have been actively prevented from producing their own food and often live in "food deserts" where fast food is more common than fresh food. Bringing together insights from studies of environmental justice, sustainable agriculture, critical race theory, and food studies, highlights the ways race and class inequalities permeate the food system, from production to distribution to consumption.
