    1) The breadth of this book is so immense there are countless ways to relate it’s content to our class discussions. It’s comprehensiveness and diversity of ideas in and of itself is an example of a systems approach to cultural modification and sustainable life styles; inter-relating everything from high-technology to agrarian simplicities, from deep economics too deep politics.

    2) The awareness of the neutrality of technology and science. The practical concepts applicable to society in transition as opposed to sheer idealism. The many information resources offered at the end of each section.

    1) What place do you think genetic engineering should hold in the future of agriculture? What kind of ethics or codes should be adopted?
