9780802123466: World Hunger: 10 Myths

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.

Brimming with little-known but life-changing examples of solutions to hunger worldwide, this myth-busting book argues that sustainable agriculture can feed the world, that we can end nutritional deprivation affecting one-quarter of the world’s people, and that most in the Global North have more in common with hungry people than they thought. For novices and scholars alike, World Hunger: Ten Myths will inspire a whole new generation of hunger-fighters.

Review:

One of Food Tank's favorite books of the year

World Hunger addresses problems of enormous human significance with valuable and often surprising information, much insight, sound common sense, and fundamental decency. It should become not only a book for study, but a guide to action.” Noam Chomsky

Like its predecessors, this brilliant book distills the truth about the state of global hunger so accessibly and urgently, that you’re left not just wiser, but armed and ready for the fight to make the world better.” Raj Patel, author Stuffed and Starved; fellow at Food First; research professor, Lyndon B Johnson School of Public Affairs, University of Texas at Austin

A must-read from the world’s most trustworthy guides to how we can end hunger. With great clarity, Lappé and Collins not only discredit widespread misconceptions but provide persuasive evidence of what’s needed to meet the challenge.” Hilal Elver, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food

Chapter by chapter, Frances Moore Lappé and [Joseph Collins] demolish the myths that have long prevented us from addressing hunger, and examine the policies that keep people from feeding themselves . . . Ultimately, the book’s strength is in the clarity of its message. World Hunger is concise, straightforward, hard-hitting . . . Lappé and her co-authors don't just bust long-standing myths and preempt counter-arguments with an armory of research, they build enough nuance into their narrative to provoke you into questioning your own personal beliefs about hunger. And then they tell you what you can do about it. When it comes down to it, that is where its power lies: World Hunger is a manifesto for change, and its call to action has never been more urgent.”—Policy Innovations

The definitive solutions-based book for all those questioning why hunger still exists when there is such an abundance of food. The book takes on difficult issues such as climate change and world population growth, drawing on years of extensive research to create attainable solutions.” Huffington Post, Food Tank’s 2015 Recommended Fall Reading List”
