Editorial Reviews

—Lester Brown, Worldwatch Institute
"A timely contribution on an important issue. It is great to have an
unemotional, broad-based assessment of genetically modified crops."


"A contentious debate has surrounded the rising use of genetically modified
crops in agriculture... This volume succeeds well in explaing the technical
issues involved and in presenting a balanced view of competing views." -- J.B.,
Population and Development Review

"This book is very much appreciated for focusing the debate on the right of
developing countries to make their own decisions about this controversial
technology." -- European Review of Agricultural Economics

"The authors are to be congratulated for explaining the difficult issues in such
a readable and engaging way, without compromising the scientific integrity." --
C. Ramasamy, Indian Journal of Agricultural Economics

"Synoptic and well founded assessment." -- Daniel Alker, Quarterly Journal of
International Agriculture
