About this book

Addresses the question of how we can best feed the ten billion or so people who will likely inhabit the earth by the middle of the twenty-first century. The author asks whether human ingenuity can produce enough food to support healthy and vigorous lives for all these people without irreparably damaging the integrity of the biosphere.
