Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"Ethics, Hunger and Globalization is a very stimulating work because it adds an ethics dimension to the research and the public debate about hunger, poverty, and globalization. … I’m very pleased with the publication of this work. Bringing together in one volume contributions of many outstanding scholars … to discuss what action is needed for implementing ethics into the policy of governments, civil society, and the private sector to alleviate poverty and hunger, is a devil of a job. It was worthwhile to do this." (Johan De Tanvernier, Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics, Vol. 22, 2009)
