When Malthus famously outlined the brutal relationship between food and population, he never imagined the success of modern agriculture. New seeds, chemicals, and irrigation, coupled with free trade, drove the greatest global population boom in history - but left ecological devastation and an unsustainable agro-economic status quo in their wake. Now, with a greater number of mouths to feed than ever before, tightening global food supplies have spurred riots and reform around the world. Who feeds whom and how matters more than ever. The End of Plenty is for anyone concerned with what the coming decades hold for our planet and our diet if we don't take action now.Biografía del autor:
