Summary
Widespread hunger continues to exist at the turn of the century, despite the efforts of scores of international relief organizations. Why? The authors of The Geopolitics of Hunger, 2000-2001 draw on both research and their first-hand experience to explore the use of hunger as a weapon in food crises around the world. They also discuss strategies to counter inequitable food distribution in complex, manipulative situations and review political approaches to combating hunger and attaining food justice
