Published for the United Kingdom Committee for the Freedom from Hunger Campaign by the Voluntary Committee on Overseas Aid and Development in 1974, 50 pages. A5 size booklet (S8295BKWSO)

From the preface: This is not the whole story of the Freedom From Hunger Campaign. It deals mainly with the first four years and with two aspects only: education and projects. From 1961, when the Campaign began, to 1964 I was the General Secretary to the U.K. National Committee for the Campaign, and involved in every detail of its planning and work. I have therefore chosen to concentrate on my own experience of the Campaign during those years, for it was then that the lines on which it was conducted in the U.K. were decided. 

The later stages-from 1964 to 1973-contain a great deal of importance but nothing which departs from the principles established at the beginning. I have therefore merely summarised briefly the work of those later years, for the dual purpose of showing the continuity of the work, and to make some final deductions. 

I have mentioned the names of a few of my colleagues in the text, but there were many more who made outstanding contributions. The present booklet, for instance, does not deal with the brilliant work in public relations done by Erica Spinney and Sarah Jenkins-yet without that work we could never have mustered a fraction of the support we did receive. 

I hope therefore that all who were my colleagues during those years will accept my assurance that I have not forgotten-and can never forget-their part in an under­taking which was exciting and challenging; unbelievably hard work; often frustrating; sometimes hilarious; but always, for me at least, immensely rewarding; above all 
because of the many fine people with whom it was my privilege to work. 


The condition of the booklet is generally good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs, but the spine is intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is yellowing to the inside pages throughout.
