Description
 
The issue, how does hunger work?, is explored in this thought-provoking blend of science, anthropology, & personal reflection. Russell takes us through the experience of hunger, from 18 hours without food to 36 hours to 7 days & beyond. In a fascinating survey of centuries of thought on the power of hunger, She discovers an ability to adapt to it that is miraculous. From the fasting saints of the early Christian church to activists like Mahatma Gandhi, generations have used hunger to make spiritual & political statements. Highlights these remarkable cases where hunger can inspire & even heal, but also addresses the devastating impact of famine & starvation on cultures around the world today. A unique window on history & the human spirit.
