Editorial Reviews

Review

Why are there still approximately 1 billion people who do not have food security? This excellent book ... gives the facts, explains the causes and suggests mitigating policies.... It is a must for all who are deeply concerned with the unacceptable scale of abject poverty and undernutrition that exists in the world today. --Richard Strange, Food Security

A boldly multidisciplinary approach that captures all the complexity of the causes of, and solutions to, hunger ... in an engaging and often witty manner that is simple but never simplistic. --Mark G. Cohen, Hunger Notes

A fine book, which should be widely adopted as a text for world food courses. --George J. Viksnins, Journal of Developing Areas

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Louis the Kingsnake on July 31, 2011
Format: Paperback
I bought this book for a course I was taking at Iowa State University. It is a jewel. The book provides comprehensive but easy-to-understand explanations for exceptionally complex problems. I was especially impressed (and grateful) at the authors' conceptualization of commodities markets and the intentions and results of various well-meaning agricultural policies. I may not have any answers but I feel I better understand the problems. And as the GI Joe's taught us, knowing is half the battle.

Purchased this as a textbook, (S/O to Howard Leathers if he ever reads this) it not only is an interesting textbook, it also contains a lot of valuable information for anyone casually interested in the subject, written in a fashion that will catch your attention.

This book is great. It gives all the issues in clear ways and makes it easy to understand. I found it to be interesting and a great text for my economics course.
