The Report presents a review of progress and setback in the various regions and discusses some of the constraints to hunger reduction efforts and challenges yet to be faced.

Julia Andrews's extraordinary study of art, artists, and artistic policy during the first three decades of the People's Republic of China makes a major contribution to our understanding of modern China.
