Hathaway, and features contributions by Michael Kugelman, Zafar Altaf, Sohail Jehangir Malik, Roshan Malik, Abid Qaiyum Suleri, Gautam Hazarika, Saadia Toor, Kaiser Bengali and Allan Jury, and Kenneth Iain MacDonald.

The book examines Pakistan’s food insecurity from a variety of angles, including supply challenges, access/distribution issues, governance constraints, social dimensions, structural dimensions, gender and regional disparities, and international responses.
