Beschreibung:

* Preface * Introduction * Why Are Africans Rejecting Biotechnology? * Why Rich Countries Dislike Agricultural GMOs * Downgrading Agricultural Science in Rich Countries * Withdrawing Support for Agricultural Science in Africa * Keeping Genetically Engineered Crops Out of Africa * Drought-Tolerant Crops--Only for the Rich? * Conclusion * An Imperialism of Rich Tastes * References * Index
Explains why poor African farmers are denied access to productive technologies, particularly genetically engineered seeds with improved resistance to insects and drought. This work traces this obstacle to the opposition to farm science in prosperous countries.
