Description: In this thought provoking work, Thomas DeGregori presents the uncommon premise that technology is a human endeavor and a positive force that defines our humanity.

Examining a number of revolutionary technological advances in this century, especially those in the agricultural areas, the author debunks common conventional wisdom that would dictate otherwise. For instance, the use of chemicals, including DDT and other pesticides, is often maligned as damaging the environment and the quality of life. Dr. DeGregori counters this argument with documentation that demonstrates how use of these chemicals has actually increased life span.

Agriculture and Modern Technology will prompt readers to re-examine current popular belief in technology.
