Growing up empty : the hunger epidemic in America by Loretta Schwartz-Nobel( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This sequel to "Starving in the Shadow of Plenty" dramatically portrays the hunger found in middle- and working-class families, the suddenly homeless, as well as America's military families, its refugees, and its immigrants. A call to action, this work is a study of a hidden epidemic that still remains largely unacknowledged at the highest political levels and is lauded as "a deft blend of tough investigative reporting and deep compassion ... an unforgettable exploration of public policy, its failures and its victims" by the most respected senators, members of Congress, journalists and hunger advocates in the country. In 1981, President Reagan incongruously announced to the world that there were no hungry souls in the richest nation in the world, that poverty had been virtually wiped out. But Schwartz-Nobel had found a different story in America's communities, and she laid bare the horrifying truth about hunger in the United States in her landmark work on hunger, Starving in the Shadow of Plenty. That book caused Americans to reexamine their priorities. Twenty years later, Schwartz-Nobel returned to see how things had improved--and discovered that it was all the same. As she tracked this hidden political and emotional battle, she was shocked to find that hunger is deeper and wider than she could have imagined, that it has reached epic proportions. It is running rampant through urban, rural and suburban communities, affecting blacks, whites, Asians, Christians, Jews and nonbelievers alike. And it is getting worse. The stories of the people she encountered are the core of Growing Up Empty. With a combination of skillful investigative reporting and a novelist's sympathetic and humanistic eye for detail, Loretta Schwartz-Nobel portrays an unforgettable reality of human suffering that need not exist. Among the people we come to know in these pages are the new breed of homeless born of the "Welfare to Work" program--working poor who have jobs but do not make enough to support their families; immigrants who work under horrifying conditions for little money and fewer benefits; a formerly middle-class dentist's wife abandoned by her husband, reduced to stealing in order to feed her hungry children; soldiers who fight on our front lines, while their hungry young wives and children stand in bread lines and are denied benefits and baby formula at military health clinics

Poisoned nation : pollution, greed, and the rise of deadly epidemics by Loretta Schwartz-Nobel( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An award-winning investigative journalist links the soaring epidemics of cluster illnesses and many other diseases to the chemical contamination of our water, air, food, and everyday products for the profit and power of a reckless few. With irrefutable evidence and moving personal stories of the sick and dying, Loretta Schwartz-Nobel demonstrates that the human equivalent of global warming is already upon us. She shows how governments of both parties operate in tandem with America's most notorious polluters and how they have deceived the public, buried evidence of spreading disease, and suppressed critical scientific data. She traces relationships between organizations whose products cause diseases and those who profit from diagnosing and treating them, as well as their efforts to avoid research into environmental causes and possible cures. Poisoned Nation is an urgent call for action that delineates the problem with such clarity that the truth shines through. The author issues a plea to religious leaders of all faiths to work together for change, to create a movement to defeat greed and guide us toward a safer, healthier future. --Publisher

Growing up empty : how federal policies are starving America's children by Loretta Schwartz-Nobel( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This sequel to "Starving in the Shadow of Plenty" dramatically portrays the hunger found in middle- and working-class families, the suddenly homeless, as well as America's military families, its refugees, and its immigrants. A call to action, this work is a study of a hidden epidemic that still remains largely unacknowledged at the highest political levels. Already lauded as "a deft blend of tough investigative reporting and deep compassion ... an unforgettable exploration of public policy, its failures and its victims" by the most respected senators, members of Congress, journalists and hunger advocates in the country, Growing Up Empty is a study of a hidden epidemic that still remains largely unacknowledged at the highest political levels. A call to action that will reenergize the national debate on the federal government's priorities, Growing Up Empty is advocacy journalism at its best. In 1981, President Reagan incongruously announced to the world that there were no hungry souls in the richest nation in the world, that poverty had been virtually wiped out. But Schwartz-Nobel had found a different story in America's communities, and she laid bare the horrifying truth about hunger in the United States in her landmark work on hunger, Starving in the Shadow of Plenty.
