Diet for a small planet by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )
78 editions published between 1971 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 2,647 libraries worldwide
Overview: With the new emphasis on environmentalism in the 1990's, Lappe stresses how her philosophy remains valid, and how food remains the central issue through which to understand world politics. Twenty years ago and three million copies later, the extraordinary book that taught America the social and personal significance of a new way of eating is still a complete guide for eating well in the '90s. This 20th anniversary edition offers an all-new, even more fascinating philosophy on changing ourselves--and our world--by changing the way we eat

Food first : beyond the myth of scarcity by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )
88 editions published between 1928 and 1992 in 10 languages and held by 1,845 libraries worldwide
Une entreprise de réfutation point par point, sous forme de questions-réponses, de l'argument selon lequel la faim dans le monde résulte d'une croissance incontrôlée de la population et d'une production agricole insuffisante. Les auteurs expliquent comment le système actuel, basé uniquement sur des critères de rentabilité, aboutit à la suralimentation des riches et à la sous-alimentation des pauvres. Comme alternative, ils suggèrent entre autres l'application du principe de l'auto-suffisance de façon à ce que les besoins des populations locales passent avant les impératifs du commerce et du profit. Un des livres les plus importants des dernières années sur le sujet

The quickening of America : rebuilding our nation, remaking our lives by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )
9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 752 libraries worldwide
This book highlights the role of citizens in solving public problems. Part 1 presents the insights of several successful Americans to show why the rethinking of self-interest, power, and public life is the key to bringing new meaning into the lives of Americans. Part 2 describes changes occurring across the United States, which are conceptualized as "a quickening in the evolution of democracy." It describes the efforts of citizens involved in tackling some of the country's biggest problems--in education, government, human services, employment, and the media. Examples of ways in which people have applied the concepts in part 1 are also described, with a focus on shared decision making. Part 3 examines the skills needed in order to be effective in one-on-one or group interactions. The qualities of character that can be cultivated for enhancing one's life are also discussed. The book closes with a discussion about what it means to abandon the search for any fixed model of the "good society" and embrace instead a "living democracy." Worksheets, an index, and list of resources are included. References accompany each chapter. (Lmi)

Aid as obstacle : twenty questions about our foreign aid and the hungry by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )
22 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 693 libraries worldwide
Reasons why U.S. foreign aid fails to alleviate hunger and poverty are discussed and a solution to the problem is presented. The United States now channels more foreign aid than ever to the world's poor and hungry through the Agency for International Development, food aid programs, the World Bank, and other multilateral aid agencies, which report that U.S. development assistance programs are meeting the basic needs of the poor people in the developing countries with "appropriate technology" and by "raising small farm productivity." However, research shows that the cause of hunger and rural poverty is not scarcity of agricultural resources or lack of modern technology, but rather the increasing concentration of control over food-producing resources in the hands of a few people. U.S. foreign assistance fails because it is based on the fundamental fallacy that aid can reach the powerless even though channeled through the powerful. The bulk of U.S. aid flows not to the countries with the greatest poverty but to those with some of the world's most repressive regimes. If U.S. programs are to be effective, they must bring the poor into development and halt all economic and military support for elitist governments. (Rm)

"But there is a solution. The answer, says Lappe is Living Democracy, a powerful yet often invisible citizens' revolution surging in communities across America. It's not random, disjointed activism but the emergence of a new historical stage of democracy in which Americans realize that democracy isn't something we have but something we do. Either we live it or lose it, says Lappe."--Jacket
