Published to stellar praise worldwide, The World According to Monsanto charts award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker Marie-Monique Robin’s three-year journey across four continents to uncover the disturbing practices of multinational agribusiness corporation Monsanto.

The book exposes the shocking story of how the new “green” face of the world’s leading producer of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) is no less malign than its PCB—and Agent Orange—soaked past. Monsanto currently 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, with baleful consequences for the world’s small-scale farmers.

Selected as a finalist for the New York Public Library’s 2011 Helen Bernstein Book Award for Excellence in Journalism, The World According to Monsanto is positioned to increase awareness of a serious threat to our food supply.

“No one who cares for their freedom and health can afford to ignore this very important book."

—Vandana Shiva, author of Earth Democracy and Stolen Harvest


“A truly eye-opening view of how American business-as-usual really works.”
—Daily Kos

"Robin’s outrage is well supported by wide-ranging scientific evidence . . . even lay readers are prodded to wise up and increase their awareness of what has become a serious threat."
—Kirkus Reviews
