Summary

"This is a simple book. It argues for a return of two critical values in international development, the securing of food for a minimal level of existence and acknowledgement of the vital role of small farmers in that basic level of food security. The diluted forms of these once central pillars of assistance and government have weakened them to the point that international development efforts are now increasing the risks of starvation in the world. Some of the facts and arguments presented here will be counterintuitive to conventionally trained functionaries, and so illustrative data and information is provided in support of forgotten yet enduring axioms"--P.1.
