Against the Grain: Biotechnology and the Corporate Takeover of Your Food.

by Marc Lappe, Ph.D., and Britt Bailey, 164 pages, paperback

The authors of this book provide interesting historical and sociological insight into reactions to genetic engineering from around the world. A thoroughly logical argument that deflates any illusion that you might still have about genetic engineering solving any of the planet's food supply woes. Against the Grain unveils many of the secrets the biotechnology giants would rather you didn't know. Despite occasionally slipping into overly-academic language, this book is worth your time.
