Monsanto is the world leader in genetically modified organisms, as well as one of the most controversial corporations in industrial history. This centuryold empire has created some of the most toxic products ever sold, including polychlorinated biphenyls and the herbicide Agent Orange. Based on a painstaking investigation, The World According to Monsanto puts together the pieces of the company’s history, calling on hitherto unpublished documents and numerous first-hand accounts. Today, Monsanto likes to style itself as a “life sciences” company. It claims it wants to solve world hunger while protecting the environment. But the history of Monsanto is filled with disturbing episodes. Behind its clean, green image, Monsanto is tightening its grasp on the world seed market, striving for market supremacy to the detriment of food security and the global environment.
