Read 'em and Eat

Take Part, the media company that strives to make participating in positive change a part of everyday life, has released "100+ Books on the Food Industry: If You Eat Food, Read Some."

It's a great list, with books by some of the usual suspects (Michael Pollan, Barbara Kingsolver, Joel Salatin) but also some less popular, but equally important books like Monocultures of the Mind, by the Delhi-based physicist/environmentalist/philosopher/activist Vandana Shiva.

I was pleased to see Rachel Carson's Silent Spring on the list, but thought Upton Sinclair's The Jungle was an equally seminal book that should have been included. I shouldn't be critical. After all, the list wasn't meant to be comprehensive (it was created based on readers' favorites). What books would you suggest?

Thanks, Take Part, for compiling all these great reads in one place.
