Food Adulteration and Food Fraud

Food Adulteration and Food Fraud

Author: Jonathan Rees Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/01/2020

What do we really know about the food we eat? A firestorm of recent food-fraud cases - from the honey-laundering scandal in the USA, to the forty-year-old frozen `zombie' meat smuggled into China, to horsemeat passed off as beef in the UK - suggests fraudulent and intentional acts of food adulteration are on the rise. Jonathan Rees examines the complex causes and surprising effects of adulteration and fraud across the global food chain. Covering comestibles of all kinds from around the globe, Rees describes the different types of contamination, the role and effectiveness of government regulation and our willingness to ignore deception if the groceries we purchase are cheap or convenient. Pithy, punchy and cogent, Food Adulteration and Food Fraud offers an important insight into this vital problem with our consumption.

Managing the Mills

Managing the Mills

Author: Jonathan Rees Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/12/2003

Managing the Mills uses the steel industry between the years 1892 and 1937 as a case study in employer motivation for opposition to organized labor. No American industry was more successful in its efforts to keep unions out of its facilities during this period, and no industry was more vocal about its reasons for doing so. The book reconstructs the management culture of this industry and shows how it interacted with the economics of steelmaking to shape particular labor policies like the twelve-hour day, welfare capitalism and the use of spies in the workplace.
