"Rachel Schurman and William A. Munro take a fresh and carefully balanced look at the social movement spawned by this technology. Anyone who wants to understand why groups across the globe oppose genetically modified foods will find this book revelatory."---Marion Nestle, author of Food Politics and Safe Food
"Fighting for the Future of Food provides a new and compelling account of the contemporary struggles over agricultural biotechnology. This superb depiction of the cultural and social lifeworlds of both the agro-industries and the activists simultaneously reveals the hubris and market ambition of agro-genetic engineering and the formation of an oppositional ideology. A brave and unffiinching account of the world of contemporary agribusiness and its opponents."---Michael Watts, University of California, Berkeley

Fighting for the Future of Food tells the story of how a small group of social activists, working together across tables, continents, and the Internet, took on the biotech industry and achieved stunning success. Rachel Schurman and William A. Munro detail how the anti-biotech movement managed to alter public perceptions about GMOs and close markets to such products, exploiting political opportunities created by the organization and culture of the biotechnology industry itself. Fighting for the Future of Food ultimately addresses society's understanding and trust (or mistrust) of technological innovation and the complexities of the global agricultural system that provides our food.
