This book provides the first comprehensive history of the numerous attempts made since the Second World War to provide food security for all. It shows not only the many ways in which attempts to achieve food and nutrition security unfolded, and the sequence in which they occurred, but also why they did not succeed, and what lessons can be drawn for the future. The book provides a point of reference for all those interested and involved in food security issues. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
