Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution
Doug Fine
192 pages | paperback with flaps $14.95 | ISBN 9781603585439 Available April 2014
Hemp Bound 
, bestselling author Doug Fine embarks on a journey to meet the men and women who are testing, researching, and pioneering hemp’s use in the twenty-first century. Hemp’s fibers are among the planet’s strongest, its seed oil the most nutritious, and its potential as an energy source vast and untapped. Its one downside? For nearly a century, it’s been effectively illegal to grow industrial cannabis in the United States. As the prohibition on hemp’s psychoactive cousin winds down, one of humanity’s longest-utilized plants will help rejuvenate the American economy.

How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public

Clear River Press 380 pages | Hardcover $31.95 | ISBN 9780985616915Paperback | $21.95 | ISBN 9780985616908 Available April 2014
This book uncovers the biggest scientific fraud of our age. It tells the fascinating and frequently astounding story of how the massive enterprise to restructure the genetic core of the world’s food supply came into being, how it advanced by consistently violating the protocols of science, and how for more than three decades, hundreds of eminent biologists and esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of its products—and get them onto our dinner plates.
 Altered Genes, Twisted Truth
 gives a graphic account of how this elaborate fraud was crafted and how it not only deceived the public, but astute and influential individuals as well. The book also exposes how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration was induced to become a key accomplice.
Steven M. Druker
 is a public interest attorney who, as executive director of the Alliance for Bio-Integrity, initiated a lawsuit that forced the FDA to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods. This revealed that politically appointed administrators had covered up the warnings of their own scientists about the unusual risks of these foods and then allowed them to be marketed illegally. His articles on GE food have appeared in several respected publications, including the
Congressional Quarterly Researcher, The Parliament magazine,
and the
Financial Times.
