(Finalist for the 2011 Helen Bernstein Book Award for Excellence in Journalism) The winner of the 2009 Rachel Carson Prize for her chilling documentary The World According to Monsanto, French television journalist and filmmaker Marie-Monique Robin presents this written companion volume to her film. Robin trekked across four continents to uncover the disturbing agribusiness practices of Monsanto, which imposes its genetically modified (GMO) corn and soy on the majority of growers in America and other countries. Monsanto's monopoly, and the alarming legal and political tactics it employs to enforce it, are the subject of worldwide concern, with baleful consequences for independent and small-scale farmers. Robin reveals how the new "green" face of the world's leading producer of GMOs is no less malign than its PCB– and Agent Orange–soaked past.

"Robin's outrage is well supported by wide-ranging scientific evidence.... Even lay readers are prodded to wise up and increase their awareness of what has become a serious threat."—Kirkus Reviews

"Truly noble journalistic work.... Robin informs, enlightens, unveils, and begins the work of alerting the public."—La Marseillaise
