World Population and World Food Supplies

By Sir E. John Russell

Allen and Unwin, Macmillan, 1954, 513 pp.

The former director of the Rothamsted Experiment Station surveys the principal food producing and consuming countries to get to grips with the problem of feeding the world's population. A valuable contribution, but containing some pretty sombre information especially as regards the prospects for the less advanced countries.
