Product description


`. . . the book covers socio-economic and policy aspects related to GM crops in a very comprehensive way. Most of the individual papers are of high quality and provide interesting results.' -- Matin Qaim, Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture `This volume will be of particular importance to scholars and practitioners alike.' -- CAB Abstracts `This volume does an excellent job encapsulating the recent thinking on transgenic crops. This collection of well-written papers presents the debate on the future of biotechnology within the context of the evolution of agriculture, economic development, the environment, and international trade. The book conveys the vast potential of agricultural biotechnology in enhancing human well-being and environmental quality, and the challenges that lie ahead in developing policies that will tap this potential. It is an important read for those interested in technological change, agriculture, development, and the environment.' -- David Zilberman, University of California, Berkeley, US `This excellent collection of readings on this complex and highly political topic covers all the key issues. How those issues are resolved in the years ahead will have a profound effect on the world food economy and especially on the hungry and malnourished.' -- Kym Anderson, The World Bank, US
