Few countries face as grim a prospect of food insecurity as the Sudan - bankrupt, at civil war, and ravaged by drought. To Cure All Hunger looks at the scope and the content of appropriate interventions, growth, income, and command over food security. A close study of the causes, dimensions and consequences of food insecurity in Sudan is instructive, not just for policy in that country but also for food insecurity analysis elsewhere. Studying an extreme case throws up challenges to the conventional wisdom which resonate across less difficult cases. The contributors to this volume bring a wide range of skills and many years' experience to the study. Their focus is mainly on north Sudan and not on the war-torn south. Nevertheless, they do indeed challenge the conventional wisdom, at least in Sudan.
