17 Food Security : Agricultural Policy and Hunger. Suzanne Zipperer.
Harare. Zimbabwe. Zimfep. 1987 First Edition Paperback Very Good No DJ. 
A very good 98 page large paperback book without inscriptions. Large brown stain on rear cover, penetrating five leaves to a rapidly diminishing extent, text unaffected. Written just before Mugabe became Prersident and published by the Zimbabwe Foundation for Education with Production, this book examines the politics and economics, both past and present, of food production in Sub-Saharan Africa, with special emphasis on Zimbabwe. Looks, amongst other things, at the question of why the region, a food exporter in 1930, and self-sufficient in 1950, was, in 1987, in a situation of starvation for so many millions. A most interesting document in the light of later events in Zimbabwe, and essential reading for anyone wanting to begin to understand the problem.
