Diet for a small planet by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )

89 editions published between 1971 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 2,649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: With the new emphasis on environmentalism in the 1990's, Lappe stresses how her philosophy remains valid, and how food remains the central issue through which to understand world politics. Twenty years ago and three million copies later, the extraordinary book that taught America the social and personal significance of a new way of eating is still a complete guide for eating well in the '90s. This 20th anniversary edition offers an all-new, even more fascinating philosophy on changing ourselves--and our world--by changing the way we eat

"From best-selling authors Frances Moore Lappé and Joseph Collins comes the 21st century's definitive book on world hunger. Driven by the question, 'Why hunger despite an abundance of food?' Lappé and Collins refute the myths that prevent us from addressing the root causes of hunger across the globe. World Hunger: Ten Myths draws on extensive new research to offer fresh, often startling, insights about tough questions--from climate change and population growth to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the role of U.S. foreign aid, and more."--

Aid as obstacle : twenty questions about our foreign aid and the hungry by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )

24 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reasons why U.S. foreign aid fails to alleviate hunger and poverty are discussed and a solution to the problem is presented. The United States now channels more foreign aid than ever to the world's poor and hungry through the Agency for International Development, food aid programs, the World Bank, and other multilateral aid agencies, which report that U.S. development assistance programs are meeting the basic needs of the poor people in the developing countries with "appropriate technology" and by "raising small farm productivity." However, research shows that the cause of hunger and rural poverty is not scarcity of agricultural resources or lack of modern technology, but rather the increasing concentration of control over food-producing resources in the hands of a few people. U.S. foreign assistance fails because it is based on the fundamental fallacy that aid can reach the powerless even though channeled through the powerful. The bulk of U.S. aid flows not to the countries with the greatest poverty but to those with some of the world's most repressive regimes. If U.S. programs are to be effective, they must bring the poor into development and halt all economic and military support for elitist governments. (Rm)

"But there is a solution. The answer, says Lappe is Living Democracy, a powerful yet often invisible citizens' revolution surging in communities across America. It's not random, disjointed activism but the emergence of a new historical stage of democracy in which Americans realize that democracy isn't something we have but something we do. Either we live it or lose it, says Lappe."--Jacket
