The Four World Food Agencies In Rome

By Ross B. Talbott
Iowa State University Press, 1990
200 pp. $29.95

This is an excellent presentation and analysis of the four principal international organizations concerned with agriculture: the Food and Agricultural Organization, World Food Program, World Food Council and the International Fund for Agricultural Development. The author, a political scientist at Iowa State University, cogently explains how they came to be, their policymaking process and what they seek to accomplish. His overall scorecard on them is favorable, but he notes that American leadership within these organizations fluctuates as he makes the case for a more active U.S. role.
