              Famine in the Remaking: Food System Change and Mass Starvation in Hawaii, Madagascar, and Cambodia (Hardback)

              Mass starvation's causes may seem simple and immediate: crop failure, poverty, outbreaks of violence, and poor governance. But famines are complex, and scholars cannot fully understand what causes them unless they look at their numerous social and environmental precursors over lo...ng arcs of history, and over long distances. Famine in the Remaking examines the relationship between the reorganisation of food systems and large-scale food crises through a comparative historical analysis of three famines: Hawaii in the 1820s, Madagascar in the 1920s, and Cambodia in the 1970s. This examination identifies the structural transformations - that is, changes to the relationships between producers and consumers - that make food systems more vulnerable to failure. Moving beyond the economic and political explanations for food crisis that have dominated the literature, Stian Rice emphasises important socioecological interactions, developing a framework for crisis evolution that identifies two distinct temporal phases and five different types of causal mechanisms involved in food systems failure. His framework contributes to current work in famine prevention and, animated by a commitment to social justice, offers the potential for early intervention in emerging food crises.

              Captain Cook's Epic Voyage

              In 1768 Captain James Cook and his crew set sail on a small British naval vessel, the boldly named Endeavour, bound for the Pacific Ocean. He was ordered to establish an observatory at Tahiti in order to record the 1769 transit of Venus, and - with the skills of naturalist Joseph... Banks and his team - to collect natural history in this far part of the world. But Cook's brief also included a secret mission from the British Admiralty- to discover Terra Australis Incognita, an unknown southern land that might prove to be larger and richer than Australia. Cook was not alone in this quest, and the Endeavour shared the Coral Sea and coastal New Zealand with an armed French merchant ship commanded by Jean de Surville. Eventually in 1770 Cook's ship crossed the Tasman Sea and reached the southern coast of New South Wales. Sailing north, he charted Australia's eastern coastline and claimed it for Great Britain. It was the most significant of Cook's voyages, transforming the world map and the way Europeans viewed the South Pacific Ocean and its lands and peoples. On this 250th anniversary of his major discovery, Captain Cook's Epic Voyage reveals the hardships, adventure and achievements of Cook's most important voyage. Reshaping his previous book, Sea of Dangers, Professor Geoffrey Blainey takes us on a vivid journey, challenging accepted views and the intersection of myth, science and exploration.
