Food's Frontier The Next Green Revolution. Richard Manning. North Point (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux), New York, 2000. 233 pp. $24, C$38.95. ISBN 0-86547-593-8.

Manning argues that we have reached the limits of what the Green Revolution of the 1960s can do to supply food to a still growing world population. He discusses nine ongoing projects that are experimenting with potential means of further increases in food production, including indigenous knowledge, native crops, and biotechnology.
