When Robert Malthus (1766-1834) famously outlined the brutal relationship between food and population, he never imagined the success of modern scientific agriculture. New seeds, chemicals, and irrigation drove the greatest population boom in history-but left ecological devastation in their wake. Now, with tightening global grain supplies spurring riots and revolutions, Joel K. Bourne Jr. takes readers from his family farm to international agricultural hotspots searching for a new land ethic that can sustainably feed us all. He visits young corporate farmers trying to restore Ukraine as Europe's breadbasket, a Canadian aquaculturist channeling ancient Chinese traditions, the agronomist behind the world's largest organic sugar cane plantation, and many other extraordinary farmers, large and small, who are racing to stave off a Malthusian catastrophe. Part history, part reportage, part advocacy, The End of Plenty is a wake-up call for anyone concerned about our planet and its people. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
