World Without Want Author:Paul G. Hoffman "Few people have had a richer experience than Paul Hoffman in the building of a productive partnership between the less fortunate nations and those that have already achieved a high state of economic advancement. In his new book World Without Want, he has drawn on that rich experience for proposals which, if adopted, might well make brighter the... more » outlook for a world order based on security, freedom, and peace. It is well worth reading."
Written during the infancy of the U.N. and many of its affiliated agencies (the World Bank, the IMF, UNESCO . . .) this Council on World Tensions Special Edition "outlines a stirring and practical program to combat the poverty and illiteracy that enslave two-thirds of mankind . . ." and ends with the oh, so optimistic sentence: "By the year 2000, we can be living in a world that has overcome poverty -- a world without want."
