About this book
A disturbing and controversial look at one of the most profound ethical, environmental economic and social issues in the world today - land grabs. All about securing commodities such as cotton, rubber or biofuels, these actions endanger the futures of the native residents.
Every day, parcels of land - the size of Wales and larger - are being gobbled up across the plains of Africa, paddy fields of South-east Asia, jungles of the Amazon and prairies of Eastern Europe. This title focuses on this most profound ethical, environmental, economic and social issue in the world.
