Surplus and Suffering: Book Review of “First World Hunger Revisited”
First World Hunger Revisited: Food Charity or the Right to Food? examines the failure of neoliberal economic policy and globalization to adequately address hunger amidst wealth. The first edition was published in 1997, and this new, expanded second edition demonstrates that current economic policies continue to be root causes of hunger. The book is a collection of essays edited by Graham Riches and Tiina Silvasti from writers in twelve countries— Australia, Brazil, Canada, Estonia, Finland, Hong Kong, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, Britain, and the US— with advanced or rapidly developing economies that nonetheless have persistent high rates of hunger.
