 About the Book 

Hunger in History represents the culmination of two years work in human hunger by the members of the World Hunger Program at Brown University. In bringing together original and specially commissioned articles by some of the worlds leading authorities on this topic, Amartya Sen, David Herlihy, Peter Garnsey, among others, the editors have succeeded in providing a strong cross-disciplinary base for the study of hunger. The volume, which includes 16 papers, looks at the problem of hunger from the beginnings of human society, defining and redefining the problem in ancient society and again in early modern and then contemporary society, and ends with an essay by the editors on solutions to the contemporary problem of hunger.
