MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The book resembles a text, synthesizing hundreds of studies and sources with a blizzard of lists, outlines, boxes, charts, tables, statistics, and acronyms as it moves from a definition of the problem to an analysis of the causes and finally to strategies and solutions. ... this volume could be a useful reference and bibliographic resource for professionals and researchers concerned with nutrition in developing countries. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate, research, and professional collections." (R. R. Wilk, Choice, Vol. 51 (2), October, 2013)

"This book highlights the current hunger situation, causes, and strategies to combat it. ... the book aims to enlighten readers about hunger and the steps being taken to increase food security. ... The book is intended for any interested readers. ... it aims to attract a broad audience who will feel inspired to take action to aid in eradicating hunger. ... This is interesting reading. It may be most appropriate for policy makers to help them understand the tremendous impact hunger has on society." (Amy Hess-Fischl, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2013)
