    Review quote
    "Puts the thorny questions raised in the biotechnology debate into historical perspective." - Deborah Fitzgerald, ISIS; "Kloppenburg examines the question of whether society will be able to use our enhanced capabilities for manipulating the genetic code to develop and deploy new plant varieties in ways that are economically productive, socially equitable, and ecologically benign." - Eric Roberts, The Times Higher Education Supplement, London"
