The handbook of food crime wins Choice Outstanding Academic Title award

We're excited to announce that A handbook of food crime, by Allison Gray and Ronald Hinch, has been chosen as a Choice Outstanding Academic Title.

The 2018 Outstanding Academic Title list includes 455 books and digital resources chosen by the Choice editorial staff from among the over 4,800 titles reviewed by Choice during the past year. Of these, 436 are print products; the remaining 19 are electronic.

These outstanding works have been selected for their excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field, and their value as an important – often the first – treatment of their subject. Constituting about nine percent of the titles reviewed by Choice during the past year, and two percent of more than 21,000 titles submitted to Choice during the same period, Outstanding Academic Titles are truly the “best of the best.

Read co-author Allison Gray on what food crime is and why it can't be ignored in this blog piece. Find out more about the book on our website (epub available for £21.59).
