"We live in an unprecedented, contradictory era.  Hunger soars amid record harvests.  At the same time, community-based democratic movements on every continent are showing the way toward a world without hunger.  They are proving that it is possible to reconnect farming with ecological wisdom by enhancing soils and  yields while empowering citizens to meet universal human needs for both food and dignity."

Frances Moore Lappé is a democracy advocate and world food and hunger expert who has authored or co-authored 16 books, on of which is Diet for a Small Planet.  She is the co-founder of three organizations, including Food First: The Institute for Food and Development Policy and, more recently, the Small Planet Institute.
