KIRKUS REVIEW

Hunger, committed author Laffin writes, sits upon the chests of a million million dead from malnutrition and related diseases, ready to devour the future of the world, half of whose people now suffer from it. Laffin witnesses the distressed and diseased areas of half the globe--India's mass poverty, Mauritusian slums, Latin barrios, the collapsed and the corpses of our skeletonized kin. His emotional reportage does more than any factual account could to impress upon the reader the impending world food shortage and its attendant miseries. By bringing together information about halting it--education of local peoples in farming techniques, reforestation, undersea harvesting are some of the methods he discusses in detail--he has served the family of man.
