Editorial Reviews


'A coherent challenge to the agrochemical orthodoxy.' BBC Wildlife 'A compelling read.' Permaculture Magazine 'This book isn't 'food for thought' it's a veritable banquet!' Scientists for Global Responsibility Newsletter 'This excellent book sets out the responsibilities for all farmers, consumers, agri-businessmen, politicians... in pursuing the path of sustainable agriculture.' New Agriculturist Online 'Filled with successful examples from around the world, Agri-Culture calls for a radical reform of the institutions and policies that control our food.' The Ecologist 'There is much in this book which is of compelling interest to anyone who wants to understand what is happening to farming and farmers.' Jersey Evening Post 'His chapter on 'The Genetics Controversy' is the best balanced and most easily understood that I have ever seen and I would recommend the book for this alone.' Bulletin of the British Ecological Society 'A wealth of detailed references.' Resurgence 'Agri-culture is particularly strong on weaving stories and case studies among the facts to make a case.' The Times Higher Supplement 'Pretty has made a deliberate attempt to make this more of an essay than a text book, in order to popularise the issues more widely. The text is engaging and easy to read without becoming 'fluffy'.' Seedling 'As with all Jules Pretty's books, the presentation is very thorough, referencing impressive and end notes informative.' EAAP News 'A passionate analysis of what Pretty sees as being wrong with our agricultural and food systems.' Environmental Politics
