In a perfect world, no one would go to bed hungry. Everyone would have enough good, nutritious food to eat every day of their lives. In the real world, hundreds of millions of people suffer the lingering effects of serious hunger. Some because their nation is torn by war; others because the land they farmed has been taken from them or has turned into a desert. That's the bad news. The good news is that people around the world are taking action to solve the problem. They include scientists, bankers, economists, engineers, doctors, nurses, ministers, and lawmakers. This book in Ron Fridell's in a Perfect World series takes a close look at the international, national, and local strategies that these people are using to fight the War on Hunger. Book jacket.
