About this book

Exploring the paradox that is the persistence of famine in the contemporary world, this book looks at the way the nature of famine is changing in the face of globalization and shifting geo-political forces.

The book challenges perceived wisdom about the causes of famine and analyzes the worst cases of recent years # including close analysis of food scarcity in North Korea, Ethiopia, Sudan and Malawi and less well known cases in Madagascar, Iraq and Bosnia. An international team of contributors have been assembled, including Marcus Noland, Alex de Waal and Dan Maxwell making this book an important resource for those in the fields of development studies and political economics.
