'An indispensable guide for evidence-based discussions on the institutional aspects of biotechnology'
Calestous Juma, Harvard University, USA

Read this book to understand why the answer is, absolutely, yes ... and to explore what the conversation now should be really about: the policy and institutional fixes in patents, licensing, seed marketing, biosafety regulation, and more that will ensure the potential benefits of the agro-tech revolution reach the world's poor'
Nancy Birdsall, President, Center for Global Development
