The World Issues series covers some of the most controversial subjects affecting our lives today. Each title looks first at one person's experiences, and then examines the facts, arguments and opinions from around the globe. Special debate panels, supported by a wealth of resource material, invite the reader to discuss the issues that are currently shaping our world.


Food technology affects every aspect of the food production and the relationship humans have with food. This book examines the fundamental questions surrounding the issue of how we prepare and eat our food. What is food technology? How has buying and selling food changed? How big a problem is obesity? Who invented frozen foods?

Award-winning author, Clive Gifford, has travelled through more than 70 countries researching and writing books for young people. His recent novel, The Water Puppets, set during Vietnam War, explores the issues involved in searching for a new home.
