About this book

Reviews the basic issues and discusses the potential that GM crops have for addressing the great needs of poor and undernourished peoples throughout the world. Explains how increased agricultural productivity is not enough in addressing the problem of famine, and that people in developing countries need crops that are disease-resistant, can fend off insect predators, and can withstand severe environmental conditions in order to produce larger crop yields.
`A timely contribution on an important issue. It is great to have an unemotional, broad-based assessment of genetically modified crops.' Lester Brown, Worldwatch Institute
