Inhaltsangabe: In this completely revised and updated edition of the most authoritative text on world hunger, three of our foremost experts on food and agriculture expose the myths that prevent us from effectively addressing the problem. Drawing on and distilling the extensive research of the Institute for Food and Development Policy (known colloquially as Food First), the authors examine head-on the policies and politics that have kept hungry people from feeding themselves around the world, in both Third and First World countries. Written in a straightforward, easy-to-read style, "World Hunger: Twelve Myths" shakes many tenaciously held beliefs; most importantly, it convinces readers that by standing together with the hungry we can advance not only huminatarian interests but our own well-being.
Inhaltsangabe: The revised edition of this text includes substantial new material on hunger in the aftermath of the Cold War; global food productioin versus population growth; changing demographics and falling birth rates around the world; the shifting focus of foreign assistance in the new world order; structural adjustment and other budget-slashing policies; trade liberalization and free trade agreements; famine and humanitarian interventions; and the thrid worldization of developed nations.
