The Oldest Problem

By one of Latin America’s most famous and formidable journalists comes a book for the ages. In HUNGER, award-winning author Martín Caparrós goes in search of why, in the 21st century, most of the world’s inhabitants still go hungry daily and To do this he travels to places where food is scarce—Niger and Northern India, as well as to the cattle grounds of Argentina, the world’s biggest beef exporter, and on to the Chicago Food Bank to learn more about the power of food distributors.

Martín Caparrós is one of Latin America’s most lauded journalists. He teaches journalism at Cornell and maintains a column for the Spanish edition of the New York Times.
