’This book discusses global food issues from a unique perspective. It builds a link between human rights and international trade. The solutions proposed in this book offer policymakers practical advice to reduce world hunger and malnutrition. This book is a must read for policymakers from India to Indiana!’ Scott Bates, Center for National Policy, USA 'Ying Chen’s book starts with a simple premise - the primacy of food for the survival of humans - and then provides an expansive and thorough coverage of the complexities of the global food system that reminds us that food policies and legal frameworks matter when it comes to food security.' Michael T. Roberts, Resnick Program for Food Law and Policy, UCLA School of Law, USA ’This exposé documents how hunger in poor nations is made worse by rich nations. Protectionist trade rules, and subsidies to agribusiness, put steak on affluent tables, but leave many of the world’s poor bereft of beans. To end hunger we need, not so much another green revolution, as a policy revolution.’ Douglass Cassel, University of Notre Dame, USA
