From the Shepherd Express:

In India, as in other countries around the world, organic farming has been practiced for thousands of years, and a new book by a leading sustainable food advocate provides a very engaging example of how one state in southern India is remaking their society by requiring all farmers to make the switch to organic agriculture by 2020…. Readers will be introduced to the growing organic movement in India, a country home to more than half a million organic farmers, and will begin to understand the growing dialogue surrounding globalization and organic food. Following India from the government-run “Green Revolution” of the 1960s to a slow transition from chemical pesticides toward the more healthy and sustainable organic infrastructure, this book provides a fresh perspective on the organic/local food movement.
