Feeding a Hungry World chronicles the history and accomplishments of the International Fertilizer Development Center’s first 40 years. Through first-hand accounts and IFDC archives, author Thomas Hager (The Alchemy of Air) sows the story of the Center’s long-time dedication to increasing agricultural productivity. Behind-closed-doors conversations about U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger’s “fertilizer idea” and hand-written documents by IFDC’s first managing director, along with historical photos from the Center’s archives, illuminate a rich and enjoyable historical account of IFDC’s dedication to feeding a hungry world.
