Analyses four issues of hunger from a political economy standpoint, looking at dominant principles, norms and causes of hunger and international programmes in response to these variables.


Part 1 International politics and food - the framework: combining social science - the sociology of international politics; food production - the political economy of inefficiency. Part 2 The international organization of food and hunger: understanding hunger; on wars fought with butter, not with guns - the international food trade outcome; regimes, surplus and self-interest - the international politics of food aid; the unbearable lightness of beings - the international organization of population; the years of adjusting dangerously - on poverty and agricultural policy reform.
