Product description

Review

Gill does great justice to this ever-pertinent issue. (Maria Kuecken, London School of Economics Review of Books)

Excellent. (William Easterly, New York Review of Books)

Well-written and accessible book. (Economist)

A thoughtful, well-informed and detached account. (Michael Holman, Literary Review)

Thank God for great journalism. A book that strips away the cant and rumour a superb and vital piece of work. (Bob Geldof)

No outsider understands Ethiopia better than Peter Gill. He combines compassion with a clinical commitment to the truth. (Jonathan Dimbleby)

The essential book on Ethiopia, the world's crucible for hunger and poverty, and on development theory and practice. (Alex de Waal, Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, and author of 'Famine Crimes')

Judicious analysis and a strong narrative. A must for all those who think there is a simple answer to the famine. (Michael Buerk)

About the Author

Peter Gill has specialised in developing world affairs for most of his career, an interest that began as a VSO teacher in Sudan and his first visit to Ethiopia in the 1960s. In the 1970s he was South Asia and Middle East Correspondent for The Daily Telegraph. For TV Eye and This Week, he made films in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation, in Gaza and Lebanon, in South Africa under apartheid and in Uganda, Sudan and Ethiopia during the famine years. He made Mr Famine for ITV about corruption at the UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation and Clare's New World about Clare Short, DFID and its first White Paper Eliminating World Poverty. From 1999- 03, he headed the India office of the BBC World Service Trust. His first project partnered Indian broadcasters in leprosy campaigning that brought 200,000 patients forward for cure, this led to a £5 million project on HIV/Aids awareness. He has is author of Drops in the Ocean, A Year in the Death of Africa and Body Count.
