Freedom from Want: The Human Right to Adequate Food
by George Kent
Publisher: Georgetown University Press 2005
Number of pages: 296
This is both a descriptive and normative argument that worldwide hunger is best addressed as a human rights issue. Kent analyzes the current deplorable state of world hunger and malnutrition, demonstrating how governments, not food shortages or climates or famine, are to blame. Adequate food as a human right requires that governments provide the resources and freedom to allow individuals and communities to provide for themselves. The manuscript includes numerous tables and illustrations, as well as a bibliographic essay.
