Lester R. Brown built his understanding of food and scarcity issues from the ground up. His father was a small farmer and as a teenager, Brown created a tomato business, while excelling at school. Living in India, working for the USDA, he sounded the alarm on an impending famine. He went on to found two major non-profit environmental organisations and advise governments internationally. Brilliant and outspoken, he has brought to the fore such issues as climate change, overpopulation, women's education, lagging agricultural productivity and the global economy - emphasising their interdependence. Using impeccable research, he continues to propose pragmatic, employable solutions to stave off pending ecological crises that endanger the planet.
