Tony Weis is an Associate Professor of Geography at the University of Western Ontario, in London, Ontario, where he lives with his wife and two daughters. Tony is the author of The Ecological Hoofprint: The Global Burden of Industrial Livestock (Zed Books, 2013) and The Global Food Economy: The Battle for the Future of Farming (Zed Books, 2007), and co-editor of A Line in the Tar Sands: Struggles for Environmental Justice (BTL/PM Press 2014) and Critical Perspectives on Food Sovereignty (Routledge 2014). At Western, Tony teaches courses which center on international political economy, biodiversity and climate change, conservation, and agriculture and food systems.

Tony’s research is broadly located in the field of political ecology and critical agrarian studies. Initially, his empirical research occurred in the Caribbean, where he lived and worked for a total of roughly three years (Jamaica and Guyana). There, he sought to understand the economic and environmental problems facing small farmers, as well as prospects for change, approaching research in a way that was grounded in work with small farmers while also considering the wider political, economic context of their struggles. This interest led him towards his first book, The Global Food Economy, which analyzed the structural imbalances, social tensions, and ecological instabilities in the global system of agricultural production and trade; the historical development and institutional entrenchment of this system; and prospects for more socially just, ecologically rational and humane alternatives. Following this, he has focused a lot of attention on what has often been described as the ‘global food crisis,' seeking to examine the biophysical dimensions of present and future food insecurity, especially with respect to the industrial grain-oilseed-livestock complex, interests which flowed into his second book, The Ecological Hoofprint. He is currently at work on his third book, tentatively titled Ghosts and Things: Animals in a Changing World.
