These essays should be required reading not only for university students but especially policy makers and leaders of the agribusiness and biotech sectors (though I doubt they could stomach it). While Berry´s focus is modern agriculture, the precepts of his philosophy are far reaching and deal directly with our moral responsibilities to the earth and one another. Despite the broad scope of his criticism, Berry´s style is plain spoken and easy to comprehend. A bit preachy at times but never small minded or condescending.
