'Writing in brisk, accessible prose, Cribb explains how the food system interacts with the environment and with armed conflict, poverty, and other societal factors.  He shows that high food prices and regional shortages are already sending out shockwaves in the international community.  he warns that the heightened risk of regional famines will have a planetwide effect on food prices, trade, and conflict and will generate new waves of refugees.  But, far from outlining a doomsday scenario, The Coming Famine is a strong positive call to action, exploring the greatest issue of our age and providing practical suggestions for addressing and averting each of the major challenges it raises.'
