Our Chelsea Green Authors : David E. Gumpert

David E. Gumpert

David E. Gumpert has become a nationally recognized writer and authority on the intersection of food, health, and business by virtue of his widely acclaimed book The Raw Milk Revolution: Behind America’s Emerging Battle Over Food Rights, as well as his provocative and popular blog, The Complete Patient (www.thecompletepatient.com) and his many articles on Grist.org and The Huffington Post about food rights. The credibility gained through his writing has earned him behind-the-scenes access to key participants and vast government documentation of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Food Rights. He has brought his considerable investigative and journalistic experience (former reporter with The Wall Street Journal, editor at Inc. and Harvard Business Review) and business expertise (author or coauthor of seven books about small business and entrepreneurship) to bear in articulating the corporate, legal, and political forces driving Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Food Rights.

    David E.'s Books

    Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Food Rights

    The Escalating Battle Over Who Decides What We Eat

    Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Food Rights takes readers on a disturbing cross-country journey from Maine to California through a netherworld of Amish farmers paying big fees to questionable advisers to avoid the quagmire of America's legal system, secret food police lurking in vans at farmers markets, cultish activists preaching the benefits of pathogens, U.S. Justice Department lawyers clashing with local sheriffs, small Maine towns passing ordinances to ban regulation, and suburban moms worried enough about the dangers of supermarket food that they'll risk fines and jail to feed their children unprocessed, and unregulated, foods of their choosing.

    The Raw Milk Revolution

    Behind America's Emerging Battle Over Food Rights

    The Raw Milk Revolution takes readers behind the scenes of the government's tough and occasionally brutal intimidation tactics, as seen through the eyes of milk producers, government regulators, scientists, prosecutors, and consumers. It is a disturbing story involving marginally legal police tactics and investigation techniques, with young children used as political pawns in a highly charged atmosphere of fear and retribution.
