The result of a remarkable three-year-long investigation that took award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker Marie-Monique Robin across four continents (North and South America, Europe, and Asia), The World According to Monsanto tells the little-known yet shocking story of this agribusiness giant - the world's leading producer of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) - and how its new ''green'' face is no less malign than its PCB- and Agent Orange "soaked past.Robin reports that, following its long history of manufacturing hazardous chemicals and lethal herbicides, Monsanto is now marketing itself as a ''life sciences'' company, seemingly convinced about the virtues of sustainable development. However, Monsanto now controls the majority of the yield of the world's genetically modified corn and soy - ingredients found in more than 95 percent of American households - and its alarming legal and political tactics to maintain this monopoly are the subject of worldwide concern.Released to great acclaim and controversy in France, throughout Europe, and in Latin America alongside the documentary film of the same name, The World According to Monsanto is sure to change the way we think about food safety and the corporate control of our food supply.

Wow. Just wow. Jarring. Amazingly well-written and psychologically intense. We live in a Monsanto world, and Ms. Robin does such an amazing job of exposing it. I am in awe. Has this won a Pulitzer? If not, it should. Read full review
