World Hunger Crisis Kit. Hope for the Hungry.
Woito, Robert, Ed.
This booklet introduces the problem of world hunger and provides information, facts, and perspectives about the crisis. Section one presents the reader with the basic facts of the hunger crisis through a self-survey, a statistical study of the developed Oil Producing Export Countries (OPEC), and a one-page indication of what one would have to give up to move from an American suburb to the fourth world. Section two gives contending perspectives on the problem. These selections help the reader understand the current argument for and against action, while section four presents a wide range of substantive and specific legislative proposals now being considered as aids in resolving the crisis. The kit concludes with a number of resources which can help individuals, organizations, or classes become more aware of this global problem. (Author/DE)
