Breaking New Ground free pdf Lester R. Brown, whom the Washington Post praised as "one of the world's most influential thinkers," built his understanding of food and scarcity issues from the ground up. His father moved from farmhand to owner of a small farm. As a teenager, Brown created a successful tomato business, even while excelling at school. Living in India while working for the USDA, he pieced together the clues that would lead him to sound the alarm on an impending famine. His urgent warning to the U.S. and Indian governments helped save millions of lives. Brown went on to found two major non-profit environmental organizations and advises governments internationally. Brilliant and outspoken, he has brought to the fore such issues as climate change, overpopulation, women's education, lagging agricultural productivity, and the global economy--emphasizing their interdependence. Using impeccable research, he has and continues to propose pragmatic, employable solutions to stave off pending ecological crises that endanger our planet.
