"Since its founding in 1975, Food First/Institute for Food and Development Policy has been in the forefront of the struggle to end world hunger. Through its research, Food First has shown that there is more than enough food for every man, woman, and child on the planet, but all too often the poor do not have access to that food. The Paradox of Plenty gathers together excerpts from twenty-seven of Food First's best writings to provide an integrated overview of the world food system, how global politics affect hungry people, and the impact of the free market."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
