In February 2018, prof. Alex de Waal presented his new book “Mass Starvation” that provides an authoritative history of modern famines: their causes, dimensions and why they ended. He analyses starvation as a crime, and breaks new ground in examining forced starvation as an instrument of genocide and war.
Alex de Waal is a world-renowned expert on humanitarian crisis and response, Executive Director of the World Peace Foundation and professor at The Fletcher School, Tufts University. For more information see: http://sites.tufts.edu/wpf/mass-starvation/ .
