1 Grigg, David The World Food Problem 1950-1980
Oxford Basil Blackwell 1989 0631153373 / 9780631153375 Soft Cover Fine No Jacket 
A Fine unmarked copy. 276 pages. For much of human history mankind has been undernourished, and for most of that time this was considered inevitable: there wasn't enough to go round. The agricultural and industrial revolutions in the 18th and 19th centuries gave hope that malnutritionmight vanish from Europe. But it was not until the Second World War that the Western nations began to concern themselves with the food problem and to look forward to a world free of hunger. Yet in 1980 some estimates put numbers of those still hungry as high as 1500 million. What went wrong? Professor Grigg searches for the causes among the mass of factors, political, demographic, economic and social, agricultural, climatic, giving separate attention to the major problem areas - Africa, Latin America and Asia. **** NOT EX LIB ****
