Skeletal bodies of men and women staring lifelessly out of sunken eye sockets. Children with bloated stomach who look decades older than their actual years. Crowds stampeding towards helicopters. Trucks unloading food donated by international humanitarian organizations. Hunger, starvation, famine and death, depicted in their worst forms. These are some of the images the media have succeeded in creating and fostering on the minds of the general public all over the world about the African famine. Famine in Africa is real, seemingly perpetual, and not getting any better. If anything, it is worsening. The lives of millions of people are at risk right now.Can the problem of famine, hunger and starvation in Africa be solved? Has international food aid helped in any realistic way? Did the African create the problem? What role did globalization play in creating the problem? This is the book that asks all the questions that many have not dared to ask and provides all the answers people have not dared to provide. It discusses, analyzes, and puts the issue in its proper historical context, by delving into the past and providing details of the underlying factors that contributed to the creation of the problem of famine, hunger and starvation in Africa
