In the last 100 years more than 90 indigenous tribes have been wiped out by European colonisation. Like the fellows before us, we continue to feel a sense of urgency as the breadth of challenges facing the global community grows. Based on both an exhumation of forgotten knowledge and on radically transformative new experimental evidence, Liberation Biology puts to rest many preconceptions of the Modern Synthesis, while recasting questions that may lead us to a world we may not only survive, but also desire.

If they told me that they discovered that they could make a dollar each from the rivets, I could do one of three things. These are fruit, whose natural sugars feed the brain and energise the body, and green plants, whose chlorophyll — the basic constituent of all physical life — has a special affinity for the blood.

Just out of Lismore, the Wilson Nature Reserve contains the remaining recognised significant stand of dry rainforest in the region. If in fact the agricultural community is beyond the stage of understanding and internalizing the need for the concept of an agriculture that can be sustained, then this book offers concrete suggestions for the types of research objectives and social and political decisions that must be followed in order to make sustainable systems a reality....
