About this book

'A marvellously lucid message: the most important cause of death and disease is hunger; the remedy is food; the remedy exists. It swiftly demolishes the myths and powerfully arms us for the political task of ending hunger' Barry Commoner


Beyund guilt and fear; myth 1 - there's simply not enough food; myth 2 - nature's to blame; myth 3 - too many mouths to feed; myth 4 - food versus our environment; myth 5 - the Green Revolution is the answer; myth 6 - justice versus production; myth 7 - the free market can end hunger; myth 8 - free trade is the answer; myth 9 - too hungry to revolt; myth 10 - more US aid will help the hungry; myth 11 - we benefit from their hunger; myth 12 - food versus freedom; beyond the myths of hunger - what can we do.
