"The sheer number of terrifying facts make the book gripping." -- Mark Bittman New York Times Book Review 20100824 "All of us interested in a sustainable food system should read this book and become part of the conversation to determine how we can best redesign the global food system to meet the challenges ahead." Audubon Magazine 20110316 "Makes clear just how intertwined global warming is with food security." Chronicle Of Higher Education 20101128 "Cribb ... advocates making much better use of our brains and investing much more in improving both small and large-scale agriculture." -- Stephen Booth Law Society Journal 20120301 "Presents a smart and compelling description of the challenges our children will likely face as the world's growing population and our shrinking resources collide. " National Catholic Reporter 20101210 "Cribb writes both eloquently and accessibly... The book is well structured for its target audience of a general public." -- Oscar A.

In "The Coming Famine", Julian Cribb lays out a vivid picture of impending planetary crisis - a global food shortage that threatens to hit by mid-century - that would dwarf any in our previous experience. Cribb's comprehensive assessment describes a dangerous confluence of shortages - of water, land, energy, technology, and knowledge - combined with the increased demand created by population and economic growth. Writing in brisk, accessible prose, Cribb explains how the food system interacts with the environment and with armed conflict, poverty, and other societal factors. He shows how high food prices and regional shortages are already sending shockwaves into the international community. But, far from outlining a doomsday scenario, "The Coming Famine" offers a strong and positive call to action, exploring the greatest issue of our age and providing practical suggestions for addressing each of the major challenges it raises.
