Reviewer: Gordon Gonway
"In just 190 pages Thomson covers a wide range of topics: the biological basis of genetic engineering, the current status of GM crops, food safety, biodiversity, patenting, labelling and so on… This is a gem of a book. It is clear and concise and makes the complex seem simple without losing the essential truths, and, as far as I can tell, it is accurate, with no innuendo, no half-truth and no wild extrapolation… The book should be read by anyone interested in crop biotechnology, but its special significance is in relation to Africa."
