Summary
Why is the well-being of millions of poor farmers in Central and South America crucial to the future of tropical rain forests, and our global environment? Can farmers around the world learn to produce food without destroying the very land that feeds them? Does science hold the key to settling the differences that emerged during the Rio Earth Day Conference between developed and developing nations? From Caribbean islands to Amazonian jungles, from farmers' fields to genetic laboratories, "A Fragile Paradise" explores the options and finds surprising evidence that there is a better way. Winner of top video documentary honors from Agricultural Communicators in Education in 1993. Superb viewing for students of agriculture, geography, biology, political science, ecology, and Latin American studies
