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
