What People Are Saying
"One of the most thoughtful analyses of agrarian capitalism is also one of the twenty-first century’s most gripping travelogues. Liberti’s precise, occasionally wicked, sketches aren’t merely enjoyable for their own sake. They’re a reminder that both the commission of and the struggle against the global food crisis involves real people." Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System

"Exemplary reportage . . . accurate, engaged, honest."
Corriere de la Sera

"Liberti writes with the curiosity and passion of the great journalists of the past."
Internazionale
