About this book

Well received journalistic account of how the genetic manipulation of American crops threatens their food supply, and by implication this has ramifications for the entire globe. `Few people realize that the future of humanity's growing population is tied to the genetic variability of crops and crop relatives. Environmentalists in particular should read this book and put conservation of these resources near the top of their agenda' - Paul R. Ehrlich.
