Overview

This last of three volumes addressing a wide range of issues relating to the role of public action in combating hunger and deprivation in the modern world, deals with strategic options for the elimination of endemic hunger. The topics covered include: the comparative extent of hunger and deprivation in different parts of the world; the influence of food production; the interconnections between economic growth and public support; the role of economic diversification in reducing vulnerability; the potential impact of direct public provisioning on living standards; and the politics of public action. In addition to general analyses, the book examines the international relevance of a number of specific country experiences in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The authors are highly respected and the series draws on an extraordinary data base and comparison between countries....This series forms the most definitive recent analysis of the problems of hunger and deprivation in the three continents of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The range of issues and countries covered is nothing short of extraordinary....Meticulously argued....Attention to detail sets these studies far above other contemporary writing on hunger and deprivation. Equally the series is welcome for its criticism of economic growth and food production to the exclusion of equity and distribution."—Dissent

"A valuable companion to the first two excellent volumes, all desirable additions to upper-division undergraduate and gradaute collections."—Choice
