Chemical poisons have infiltrated all facets of our lives. More than half a century since Rachel Carson issued Silent Spring - her call-to-arms against the poisoning of our drinking water, food, animals, air, and the natural environment - The Fight Against Monsanto's Roundup looks at the politics underlying the mass use of pesticides and the challenges people around the world are making against the purveyors of poison and the governments that enable them.
"This may be one of the most important books you read this year. We are being poisoned, and this book is sounding a well-informed alarm. Read it. Get educated and then join the thousands rising up against those who care more for profit than the health of our bodies and our earth."
- Eve Ensler
"Activism and science need one another to stay grounded in reality. Few environmental activists have done more than the poet and science writer Mitchel Cohen to connect with scholars across a multitude of disciplines in his tireless campaign to keep the natural world from turning into a toxic hell. This book, with its remarkably varied group of expert contributors, is both a monument to Cohen's ongoing efforts and a resource for those who will be inspired by it to join forces with him." - Stuart Newman, Ph.D., Professor of Cell Biology and Anatomy, New York Medical College
