Throughout the world, countries are battling soaring food prices, food-borne illnesses, food shortages and undernourishment, and the detrimental effects of certain farming and manufacturing practices on health, nutrition, and the environment. Even in the United States-which historically has had an abundant food supply-more and more people are suffering from food insecurity, especially with the onset of the global financial crisis. Recent advances in agriculture and distribution have positively affected many regions of the world, but there has yet to be an outright and satisfactory solution to this ongoing crisis.

Food Security examines the three pillars of this timely topic-availability, access, and nutrition. This brand-new resource analyses the current and past efforts of private and governmental groups to combat food insecurity, and detailed case studies of food security issues in the United States, Bangladesh, China, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, and Yemen are also provided.
