The World According to Monsanto
An investigation into the World’s Most Controversial Company. This is the first book devoted to telling the whole Monsanto story, from the release of PCBs early last century through the Agent Orange horror to the firm’s reinvention in the past 20 years as a “life sciences” corporation. Beautifully researched, Robin relates a litany of dire events, all profoundly depressing, all deeply entwined with the fabulous success of this pervasive corporation. An incredibly resilient and resurgent company, the global food regime that Monsanto promotes is anything but sustainable, and a crisis is indeed inevitable.
