Organic Manifesto: How Organic Farming Can Heal Our Planet, Feed the World, and Keep Us Safe Hardcover - 2010

by Maria Rodale; Foreword by Eric Scholsser

Rodale sheds new light on the state of 21st-century farming, examining the unholy alliances that have formed between the chemical companies that produce fertilizer and genetically altered seeds, the agricultural educational system that is virtually subsidized by those same companies, and the government agencies in thrall to powerful lobbyists.
