Seven top books on feeding the world

One title from the Guardian's list of the top seven books on feeding the world:
The Politics of Food: The Global Conflict Between Food Security and Food Sovereignity by William D Schanbacher

Our current global food system is a violation of human rights, says Schanbacher. This passionate and informative book argues the current model for combating global hunger is too dependent on trade and international agribusiness. Schanbacher puts together a concise argument – examining global trade and corporate monopolisation of the food industry – on why food sovereignty is a more sustainable and effective approach to solving world hunger.
