Revised edition. [First Edition: 1965] From the cover: “The Hungry Planet is a chilling report on man’s failure to live up to the simplest obligation of human survival: making sure of the next meal. Georg Borgstrom, a leading international authority on food utilization and world nutrition, points out that, in order to feed even the present world population adequately, we would have to double our food production overnight. With supreme ingenuity we might achieve and sustain this goal within forty or fifty years. But by that time, at its current rate of growth, our population will have doubled.
