Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"World Hunger" explores the nature and extent of contemporary world hunger, explaining why hunger still persists while agricultural production increases and genetic engineering revolutionizes food production and distribution. Illustrating the diversity of diets in the world and the connections between the global and local in numerous case studies, Young asserts that contrasting material realities of North and South hemispheres are very similar--the misconception that hunger "over there" is unconnected to conditions "over here" is exposed. Globalization and access to food in the global supermarket is also examined. Explaining the essential political character of hunger, the author exposes popular myths and identifies positive changes where prevailing inequalities and ideologies are challenged and it becomes possible to envisage a world where hunger is history.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [169]-176) and index.
