Nutrition for Developing Countries

ISSN

The first edition of Nutrition for Developing Countries was published by Oxford University Press in 1972. As its co-author Maurice King writes in his preface to this third edition, it was written in response to a request to write a “nutrition manual,” and its success led to King being dubbed a “knowledge engineer” for his achievement in presenting such a complex topic with such admirable clarity.

In her Foreword to this third edition, Anna Lartey, Director of Nutrition at the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), writes: “This book is a ‘one-stop shop’ nutrition text- book for anybody working in a developing country who needs to update their knowledge on key nutrition topics.” Encountering the first edition for the first time in the 1980s when she was working as a nutrition lecturer at the University of Ghana, Dr Lartey recalls that she was “amazed by the breadth of topics covered and the simplicity of the language. For me,” she continues, “it is a ‘must-have’ book for anybody teaching or doing community nutrition work in Africa or elsewhere.” Dr Lartey notes that the new edition of Nutrition for Developing Countries “still retains its easy-to-read and well-illustrated style,” noting that the content “has been expanded to take into consideration current challenges and opportunities for nutrition, which health and nutrition professionals working in developing countries must face.”

This fully revised and updated third edition has been prepared by an international editorial team with extensive field experience in Africa and Asia. Using clear, simple language and many illustrations – some of them drawn from the previous two editions, many of them newly created for this one – it brings together the essentials of nutrition in a way which is accurate, up-to-date, and suitable for a wide range of readers.
