This unique book adds an ethics dimension to the debate and research about poverty, hunger, and globalization. Scholars and practitioners from several disciplines discuss what action is needed for ethics to play a bigger role in reducing poverty and hunger within the context of globalization. The book concludes that much of the rhetoric is not followed up with appropriate action, and discusses the role of ethics in attempts to match action with rhetoric.

From the reviews:
"Ethics, Hunger and Globalization is a very stimulating work because it adds an ethics dimension to the research and the public debate about hunger, poverty, and globalization. ... I'm very pleased with the publication of this work. Bringing together in one volume contributions of many outstanding scholars ... to discuss what action is needed for implementing ethics into the policy of governments, civil society, and the private sector to alleviate poverty and hunger, is a devil of a job. It was worthwhile to do this." (Johan De Tanvernier, Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics, Vol. 22, 2009)
