BECKLAKE JOHN and SUE. Food and Farming. (Illus.; from the Green Issues Series.) NY: Gloucester Press, 1991. 40pp. $11.90. 90-45655. ISBN 0-531-17288-0. Glossary; Index; C.I.P. EA, JH

Food and Farming provides a modern overview on the subject. The answer to worldwide food shortages is aptly stated: "Help each country to grow and distribute food for its own people while trying to control population growth." Many important subjects are not discussed in depth. One is the explanation that the failure of the green revolution is, in part, due to uncontrolled population growth.

This book would be a valuable asset for public schools and the general public.-- Albert E. Feldman, Mesa Community College, Mesa, AZ

Readers should get an appreciation of the differences between the lives of free-ranging chickens and those raised in high- density establishments. I would have liked more discussion of the bioethical issues here, given the ages of the appropriate readers.-- Martin LaBar, Central Wesleyan College, Central, SC
