11 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its establishment in October 1945 it has been the stated aim of the United Nations to eliminate hunger and malnutrition. For the last three decades more than enough food has been produced to feed the world, yet the numbers suffering from hunger continue to increase. In the developing countries some 150 million children under 5 are now seriously malnourished. In The World Food Problem, updated in every respect since its first edition in 1985, David Grigg provides a full account of who is hungry, where, and why." "The causes of hunger are manifold and complex: population growth, environmental degradation, poverty, inefficient farming, poor distribution, inappropriate aid, war, drought, famine, corruption and incompetence are among them. The great strength and value of this outstanding book lie at once in the author's understanding of the nature and scope of the problem, and in his clear analysis of the factors operating in a wide range of instances. Not only is the search for simple solutions pointless but, as he shows only too vividly, their implementation is frequently damaging and counterproductive."--Jacket

The agricultural systems of the world an evolutionary approach by David B Grigg( )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the prevalent characteristics and distribution of the major agricultural systems of the world - shifting cultivation, wet rice cultivation, pastoral nomadism, Mediterranean agriculture, mixed farming, dairying, plantations, ranching and large-scale grain production. In Part One some major periods and processes that have affected agriculture are discussed. Chapter 2 deals with the origins and early diffusion of agriculture and its significance. Chapter 3 deals with the subsequent diffusion of crops and livestock, particularly since the discovery of the New World, and Chapter 4 with the effect upon agriculture of industrialisation and urbanisation since 1850. In Part Two of the book some description of each type of agriculture is given. It is the author's belief that there can be no adequate account of the prevailing character of world agriculture without recourse to the evolution of agricultural systems. Thus each chapter in Part Two is an essay on the historical development of each of the major systems
