The hunger machine. The politics of food

The hunger machine The politics of food: 232

The hunger machine. The politics of food

The book challenges the myths that hunger is caused by over-population, inadequate food resources and bad weather. It demonstrates that there is not only adequate food produced at present to feed the world's population, but that there is enough to feed the population of the year 2000. It indicates that it is the way in which the food is produced and distributed that determines who survives.
