In the West we think of famine as a natural disaster, brought about by drought; or as the legacy of brutal dictators. But in this powerful investigative narrative, Thurow & Kilman show exactly how, in the past few decades, American, British, and European policies conspired to keep Africa hungry and unable to feed itself. As a new generation of activists work to keep famine from spreading, Enough is essential reading on a humanitarian issue of utmost urgency.
"A page turner. Unless you simply don't give a damn, this is a must read, and it is a must read now." (The Huffington Post)

Good backgrounding for hunger issues
This is a good account of the events and decisions which have contributed to Africa's hunger issues. Excellent for people new to the various issues affecting hunger and poverty in Africa, and a good summary and refresher course for those who ma know something about it. But it will only be useful if readers/listeners take head of the warnings and recommendations. Well balanced and objective for the most part. Hard to be totally objective when the facts speak so clearly for themselves and reveal the injustices which the developed world has inflicted on Africa.
