3: Borlaug Volume 3 - Bread Winner 1960 - 1969
BORLAUG: Volume 3, Bread Winner. 1960 - 1969 shows how, during the decade of the 1960s, Borlaug's seeds almost miraculously reached Asia by accident. Here's where he begins playing a part in history: In 1964 people passed the 3 billion mark, a third were under 30, and in the decade ahead they would have billions more children. To the experts, the future was clear, Paul Ehrlich laid it out in 1968: "The battle to feed humanity is over," he wrote, "In the 1970s the world will undergo famine - hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death in spite of any crash program.
Borlaug Volume 3 highlights dozens of drams that ended up proving the experts wrong. The text is lively and informative, and is supported by 46 photographs.
