About this book

As recent advances in biotechnology lead many countries towards a second green revolution, the author considers the catastrophic impact of the first green revolution on India. She shows how alternative agricultural and peasant systems were pushed aside for short term gain, and how this destroyed genetic diversity and soil fertility.
