This revised edition is part of a series which examines important subjects of concern in the world today, in this case the famine in Africa. Photographs as well as textual changes have been made to reflect the many changes that have taken place since the orignal publication of the book.

Grade 6-8 Timberlake argues that government policy may be as much to blame for the African famine as is the lack of rain. The text is on target, as it describes natural (poor soil, drought, erosion) and political (cash vs. food crops, herders vs. farmers) causes of hunger. The color diagrams and photos emphasize the horror. Photos of the land are accompanied by drawings which depict natural and economic cycles. Hardest to look at are the faces, of course, and the political map of Africa which is punctuated by skulls over the most critically affected countries. Rhoda Blumberg's Famine (Watts, 1978; o.p.) is outdated. Symme J. Benoff, Free Library of Philadelphia
