About this book

A comprehensive and user friendly description of the scientific origins, the development, and the applications of genetically modified plants throughout the world today. Lurquin argues that only with an understanding of the basic science can people make informed and reasonable decisions about genetically modified foods.

An interesting and remarkably even-handed history of the development of GM technology.
