World Hunger: A Challenge to American Policy. Headline Series No. 252.
Linowitz, Sol M.
This booklet examines one of the most tragic and dangerous paradoxes facing the nations of the world at the end of the 20th century: hunger amid plenty. Even though the world does not lack for food, the problem lies in the distribution and power of ownership. There are serious moral, economic and political reasons why the U.S. in particular should concern itself actively with the problem of world hunger. Chapters include: (1) "The Paradox of World Hunger"; (2) "Combating Hunger at the National Level"; (3) "Combating Hunger at the Human Level: Food and Jobs for the Poor"; (4) "World Hunger and U.S. Leadership"; and (5) "Six Priorities for U.S. Action." Monographs in FPA's Headline Series are published approximately four times a year and are intended as a resource for teachers and students in the foreign policy area. Each monograph: is about a world area or topic; is written by a noted scholar; is brief (usually 64 pages); is written to be highly readable; and includes basic background, maps, charts, discussion guides, and suggested reading.
