When genetically engineered seeds were first deployed in theAmericas in the mid-1990s, the biotechnology industry and its partnersenvisaged a world in which their crops would be widely accepted as thefood of the future. Critics, however, raised a variety of social,environmental, economic, and health concerns. This book traces theemergence of the 2000 Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety andthe discourse of precaution toward GEOs that the protocolinstitutionalized internationally. Peter Andre explains this reversalin the "common-sense" understanding of genetic engineering,and discusses the new debates it has engendered.
