  • Whose Hunger?by Jenny Edkins

    University of Minnesota Press 2008; US$ 35.00

    We see famine and look for the likely causes: poor food distribution, unstable regimes, caprices of weather.

Jenny Edkins responds to the contrary: famine in the contemporary world is not the antithesis of modernity but its symptom. A critical investigation... more...
