Media reviews

Manning traveled to developing nations and investigated research projects...from a sweet potato pest study in Uganda to a multi-crop system of farming in Mexico, focused on native crops and applying modern science to traditional wisdom. Input from scientists, civil servants, and farmers yielded innovative interdisciplinary solutions to today's problems. - Dean Neprud, Minneapolis Star-Tribune "With the Green Revolution unmasked as chemical overkill, finding a way of feeding the billions in 2020 is one of the biggest challenges we face. Richard Manning has a go at unpicking the complexities of the job in his admirable Food's Frontier." - The New Scientist "Food's Frontier sets a new intellectual standard for placing genomics, biotechnology, and food security into the lives of ordinary people. Richard Manning takes the reader on a worldwide tour of agriculture, displaying both its science-rich and resource-poor systems. His volume combines complex scientific principles with a remarkably accessible style. Above all, Manning demonstrates the shortage of human capital in poor countries and the need for much greater support for Third World scientists." - Paul Ehrlich, author of Human Natures "Manning hopscotches through Africa, Asia, and South America to provide detailed reports on nine agricultural research projects. The resulting travelogue is thoughtful, provocative, and bursting with complexities and contradictions." - Karen Cook, Voice Literary Supplement
