Food shortage and rising prices of food commodities have not crept up on us. The life-and-death implications of food insecurity have burst upon the world`s consciousness within the last 18 months (as of June 2008). The book attempts to bring into focus, in a succinct manner, the various facets of the problem and the solutions suggested by government, institutions, scientists and administrators. If understanding of the problem and its ramifications are notched even to a small degree by this book, it will have served its purpose. It is concerned with raising awareness of the impending tragedy and, at the same time stressing the many solutions that have been thrown up.
