This volume is an in-depth study of global food security, focused at the household level. Filled with dozens of revealing figures, charts, and tables, including a food security index that ranks developing countries in terms of their vulverability to hunger, the work provides a basic introduction to issues of food security. The work illustates that a micro-economic, grassroots approach, rooted in the self-help capacities of the poor, is not only feasable, but a productive means of enhancing food security for all.
