Reviews

"New Roots for Agriculture is a landmark. . . . It offers a sound, thoroughly documented criticism of the assumptions and the effects of industrial agriculture; for that alone the book would be valuable. But it goes beyond criticism to propose practical remedies."--Wendell Berry
"An excellent addition to a growing list of books and articles documenting some alarming trends in our ability to produce food. . . . This short but well-documented book deserves broad circulation and public discussion. Its warnings may well be prophecy."--Los Angeles Times
