Reviews


This book reminds us that the only option for a small island nation facing an inhumane embargo and devastating hurricanes, is to embrace agroecology as a path to achieve food sovereignty and agricultural resiliency while maintaining its political autonomy.

The unfinished puzzle refers to the challenge of overcoming the Cuban agriculture paradox. Despite great agroecological advances and with over 120,000 peasants using sustainable methods--and producing most of the food in the island--why does Cuba still import substantial amounts of food? and why is the government releasing transgenic plants such as Bt corn? Why is agroecology, considered as "alternative," and only supported under scenarios of economic scarcity? This book, helps to address this unfinished puzzle.
MIGUEL A. ALTIERI
President, Latin American Scientific Society of Agroecology (SOCLA)
