تاثیری که این کتاب در زمان خواندنش ( سال پیش) بر من گذاشت باورنکردنی بود. شاید الان نقدهایی بر آن داشته باشم اما هنوز از این کتاب به عنوان یکی از پرنفوذترینها نام میبرم. ...more

Really, its a bit old to be relevant but still an interesting read. It was written in 1986.

I just hope things and attitudes have changed.

Even though it's older (late 70s?), I feel it is one of the best criticisms of the Green Revolution I have read yet.
