* 'Green Revolution' technologies of the 1960s to 1980s could only be afforded by wealthy farmers, and the number of hungry people increased.

* 'Green Revolution' technologies have been proven to have negative long-term consequences for soil and ecosystems.

* The World Bank, International Agricultural Research Centers, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the UN, and the US Agency for International Development want to bring an updated version of the 'Green Revolution' to the poor in Africa, who were largely by-passed the first time around.

Is it true that we can only alleviate hunger, save the environment, reduce rural poverty, and promote national development in Africa through increasing the productivity of poor farmers by a 'New Green Revolution'? This book challenges the persistent myths that underlie calls by the World Bank, US Agency for International Development, and other powerful organizations to push the 'New Green Revolution' and argue for more promising policy alternatives and agroecological technologies to benefit all Africans, not just the wealthy.
