About this product
- DescriptionWhy does hunger persist in a world of plenty? Ending Hunger Worldwide challenges the naive tion that everyone wants hunger to end, arguing that the powerful care - but t eugh to make a difference. George Kent argues that the central focus in overcoming hunger should be on building stronger communities. It is these communities which can provide mutual support to ensure that people don't go hungry. Kent demonstrates that there is t a shortage of food but of what Amartya Sen terms 'opportunities', and that developing tight-knit communities will lead to more opportunities for the hungry and underurished. Ending Hunger Worldwide challenges dominant market-led solutions, and will be essential reading for activists, NGO workers and development students looking for a fresh perspective.
