Summary
"From best-selling authors Frances Moore Lappé and Joseph Collins comes the 21st century's definitive book on world hunger. Driven by the question, 'Why hunger despite an abundance of food?' Lappé and Collins refute the myths that prevent us from addressing the root causes of hunger across the globe. World Hunger: Ten Myths draws on extensive new research to offer fresh, often startling, insights about tough questions--from climate change and population growth to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the role of U.S. foreign aid, and more." -- Amazon.com
