About this book

Draws on many stories of successful transformation to a sustainable agriculture type. This book shows that there is no alternative to radical reform of national agricultural, rural and food policies and institutions - the time has come for the next agricultural revolution.

'I have read Agri-Culture from cover to cover. It is fabulous' Tim Lang, Thames Valley University; 'It is wonderful to see all the examples throughout the book through the eyes of the people who did the work on the ground, through their voices or frustration or experiences' Brian Halweil, Worldwatch Institute


Preface to a revolution; landscapes lost and found; monoscapes; reality cheques; food for all; only reconnect; the genetics controversy; ecological literacy; crossing the internal frontiers.
