The Guardian Names Roger Thurow's "Enough" a Top Read

"From eco-friendly farming techniques to the history of food activism"–The Guardian's new list of recommended international development reads includes Senior Fellow Roger Thurow's Enough.

From The Guardian:

"If you’ve just started working in international development, getting to grips with the latest and best books on this topic can seem a little daunting. From eco-friendly farming techniques to the history of food activism, we asked our community for books which highlight methods that are creating a better, more sustainable food system for the world. Recommended by you, here are a selection of the best.

1. Enough: Why the World’s Poorest Starve in a World of Plenty by Roger Thurow and Scott Kilman
Recommended by our readers, this investigative book highlights – in the words of the authors – exactly how “American, British, and European policies have conspired to keep Africa hungry and unable to feed itself”. Written by two former American journalists, this read is essential for food activists looking to get clued up on this topical humanitarian issue."
