Dreze, Jean, Sen, Amartya

SUMMARY

This volume, the second of three addressing a wide range of policy issues relating to the role of public action in combating hunger and deprivation in the modern world, deals primarily with famine prevention--paying special attention to sub-Saharan Africa. Topics covered include: the problems of early warning and early action; the influence of market responses; the role of cash support and employment provision in protecting threatened food entitlements, and long-term issues of reduction of famine vulnerability. Taken together, the essays in this study provide a comprehensive and authoritative analysis of famine prevention issues, and an important guide for action. This volume will be of particular interest to developmental and agricultural economists and political economists.Dreze, Jean is the author of 'Political Economy of Hunger Famine Prevention' with ISBN 9780198286363 and ISBN 0198286368.
