Alice WEinreb Modern HungersThe winner of the inaugural WCGS Book Prize is Alice Weinreb of Loyola University for her book Modern Hungers: Food and Power in Twentieth-Century Germany, published by Oxford University Press.

Prof. Weinreb examines how hunger has been a central motivating force in German politics throughout the 20th century.  By focusing on hunger’s role in German society, Prof. Weinreb demonstrates “the fluid relationship between state power and food provisioning.” If governments control the food supply, they can also control the populaces they govern, and Prof. Weinreb uses Germany as a case study to illustrate this important point.
