A propos de cet article

121 pages, well illustrated, cloth, dj, ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. From the publisher: "Life-giving protein from corn and oats instead of steers is one of many possibilities this book investigates in 'the story of a great contest - a race between babies and bread - with the prize freedom from hunger for all the world. This contest starts in the old Stone Age, when men learned to farm, and ends in what the author names 'the new Stone Age,' when we may be able to extract from energy to increase food supplies. Making milk from grass, food from wood - while using the trees to prevent erosion; hunting fish with planes and echo sounders; fertilizing the sea and growing seaweed on land; getting more fresh water by tugging icebergs from the poles - these are visions of life in the New Stone Age.".
