Hunger, A Scientists' Institute for Public Information Workbook.
The first section of this workbook gives data on hunger and malnutrition in the United States, and outlines immediate community and national action needed to meet the emergency and provide against its recurrence. The second section discusses problems of world food supply, spreading technology, the population explosion, and the handling of agricultural surpluses. The third deals with scientific and social questions. One article argues that food supply is not the best determinant of optimum population size, others discuss the effect of fertilizers on the ecosystem, increasing food yields from salty soil, and the effects of infant malnutrition on adult learning. Each section includes an annotated bibliography. (EB)
