Hunger by Martin Caparros
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


25,000 men, women, and children die every day from hunger or malnutrition around the world. And yet, food is not lacking: in fact, it is in abundance, as the planet strains under the effect of overproduction. How can we resolve this paradox? This is the question that Martin Caparros explores in this urgent and important book by giving a voice to people suffering from the crisis, as well as those striving to alleviate it. Above all, Caparros is determined to uncover the mechanisms that result in almost one billion people starving while others become obese. Hunger is a crucial, passionate, and deeply empathetic book, committed to exposing the scale of this universal crisis and seeking insightful solutions.
