The politics of bread.

SILVER SPRING, Maryland--Bread for the World, the 44,000-member Christian anti-hunger movement that lobbies for hunger policy changes, has released its "Hunger 1999" report. Subtitled "Hunger in a Global Economy," it provides extensive information and analysis on the political aspects of hunger. Among its results, the report notes several positive trends: an increase in life expectancy and declines in starvation deaths, the number of hungry people in the world, and infant mortality. While hunger still presents terrible problems, "The end of hunger," the report says, "is within reach."

"Hunger 1999" contains chapters on the politics of hunger in the contexts of poor countries, global economics and communications, and public policy. It also describes political strategies to end hunger.

Copies of the report can be obtained from BFW at 301-608-2400; www.bread.org.
