About the Author
Eric Holt-Giménez is the director of the Institute for Food and Development Policy, known as Food First, a "people's think tank" dedicated to ending the injustices that cause hunger. For over two decades, he has worked with peasant movements in Mexico and Central America, and has taught and published widely. He is the author of Campesino a Campesino: Voices from Latin America's Farmer to Farmer Movement for Sustainable Agriculture.

"Land Reform in America has been deferred for too long. This book paints a powerful picture of the continuuing need and rallies us to make it happen. There's still time to carry out the vision we started building in the 1970s." --- Peter Barnes, co-founder of Credo Mobile and editor of The People's Land: A Reader on Land Reform in the United States

"This volume presents a unique discussion of US agriculture and the ongoing struggle for land justice in the words of engaged activists - women, Latinos, Native Americans, and African Americans. The variety of inspiring approaches to action included here offer lessons for everyone concerned with land, food, and a just society." ---Fred Magdoff, Professor Emeritus at the University of Vermont and board member of the Monthly Review Foundation

"Hunger and poverty are perpetuated by undemocratic systems of power. Now, this great new resource lifts the veil hiding the history of dispossession and unequal land access in the US. It reveals land as the next major arena of struggle for food, economic, and social justice movements, while highlighting new projects and pathways forward." --- Frances Moore Lappé, author of Diet for a Small Planet
