Publisher's Summary

After 30 years reporting for the Wall Street Journal, Roger Thurow left his job to focus exclusively on the issues of hunger, food supply and agriculture as a senior fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. His first book, published in 2009, was the critically acclaimed, Enough: Why the World’s Poorest Starve in an Era of Plenty. For his newest book, Thurow followed 4 small farmers in Kenya through one full year of farming. It’s titled The Last Hunger Season: A Year in an African Farm Community on the Brink of Change.

Then, German physicists devoted to Nazi ideology rejected Albert Einstein’s work and derided it as ‘Jewish science.’ In his latest book, author and professor Steven Gimbel takes a closer look at this claim, examining Einstein’s contributions to physics through the lens of his cultural and religious background. Gimbel’s book is titled, Einstein’s Jewish Science: Physics at the Intersection of Politics and Religion. [Broadcast Date: September 26, 2012]
