Media reviews

This magisterial work examines human interaction with the biosphere, agriculture in all its manifestations from the supposedly innocent and effectless acts of hunter-gatherers to the most industrialized monocultures of today's unsentimental corporate farms. It is the sort of book which must be factored into the planetary debate on the preservation of biotic resources. The scientists whose work is presented here should be heard in a world which is all too willing to engage in pitched battles over oversimplified scenarios, usually misrepresented to the public in a contest which is almost always political. Anyone reading this important book will begin to understand the high proportion of ignorance in the environmental elitism found in all sections of the public war over the blessed, and not so blessed, diversity of life. Man is mostly the hero in this collection of scientific studies, agriculture is his great monument."--John Swenson, Chicago Botanic Garden
