About this book

The authors explore how warfare creates hunger, and reassess the role of relief. They provide constructive suggestions which are relevant to the difficult issues of policy and institutional reform which the UN machinery and NGOs must confront if they are to cope effectively.

"A definitive analysis of the genesis of conflict and famine and the complex ways in which the two are linked"
– Martin Griffiths, former Director of Action Aid

"One of the first attempts to tap the tremendous experience of NGOs in helping us shed light on the crucial issues relating to humanitarian tragedies in situations of war"
– M M Sahnoun former UN Special Representative in Somalia
