Can the world feed itself? Written for a popular audience, "Feeding Frenzy" traces the history of the global food system and reveals the underlying causes of recent food shortages and price spikes what the media has labelled a 'world food crisis'. As the tectonic plates of the world food system shift, forces are being unleashed that threaten the security of billions. Food-producing countries are banning exports to benefit their own citizens, even if this means that other countries starve. Powerful food-importing regions in Asia and the Middle East are making secret deals with other developing countries to secure supplies and setting up their own trading companies so they can buy direct from farmers in the USA, Brazil or Australia. Most worryingly, they are acquiring huge areas of under-utilised farmland in poor countries to grow crops for export, often at the expense of local communities. Some of the trends identified in this book are unstoppable. But McMahon also outlines actions that can be taken to lower the risks of conflict and to produce fairer outcomes. It is possible to envisage a more benign scenario, associated with a shift to a sustainable and productive form of agriculture. Which path will the world choose?
