Summary

Global Development of Organic Agriculture: Challenges and Prospects
Edited by N. Halberg, H. F. Alroe, M.T. Knudsen and E.S. Kristensen. CABI Publishing, Wallingford, UK. <www.cabi.org>. May 2006. 380 pages, £55, ISBN 1 84593 078 9.
Global Development of Organic Agriculture is valuable for its both explicit and implicit championing of the diversity of organic agriculture systems - and in particular, its acknowledgment of the legitimacy and value of both certified and non-certified organics. In this, it serves as a useful foil to the fortress organics mentality that sees non-certified organics as some kind of impostor or threat to “the brand”. This book takes as a starting premise the legitimacy and value of both strands of organics, and proceeds from there.
