520 . ‡aWorld hunger was very nearly eradicated in our lifetimes--but in the past five years widespread starvation has suddenly reappeared, and chronic hunger is a major issue on every continent. Ziegler lays out in clear and accessible terms the complex global causes of the new hunger crisis. He focuses on how the new sustainable revolution in energy production has diverted millions of acres of corn, soy, wheat, and other grain crops from food to fuel. The result: with declining food reserves, prices are at record highs and a new global commodities market in ethanol and other biofuels gobbles up arable lands.
