Description
One in six people in America face hunger, but famine is a worldwide issue. Millions of people are starving across the globe. Give your readers an understanding of the ways we are blessed if we never go hungry. Essays will discuss the global food crisis and famine's relationship to natural disasters, politics, and the world economy. Readers will evaluate whether the responses to famine are enough, and what we should be doing to combat it. With the majority of the material reflecting stances of countries other than the United States, readers are provided with a truly panoramic view. Helpful features include an annotated table of contents, a world map and country index, bibliography, and subject index.
