    "[Genetically Modified Organisms: A Scientific-Political Dialogue on a Meaningless Meme] is an excellent book presenting a very strong case for abandoning the acronym GMO. It will be extremely helpful to scholars and educators in developing countries who need to persuade their populace and politicians to adopt modern methods to reap the benefits of more nutritious foods and greatly improved yields."

Ecosustainable Narratives and Partnership Relationships in World Literatures in English

The book challenges the myth of the neutrality and detachment of the scholar. Its strength lies in its dynamic, engaging and passionate participation in the meeting of texts and words of different genres, geographical areas and cultures, in the pluralistic diversity of the themes explored, in its fundamental and creative relations with ecosophy, ethnophilology, ecofeminism, system theory and ecolinguistics. It brings together renowned international scholars to focus on postcolonial, ecocritical, mythical, and archetypal studies of literature, education and its partnership mediation, applied linguistics and plurilingual education.

"Ecosustainable Narratives and Partnership Relationships in World Literatures in English, edited by Antonella Riem Natale and Tony Hughes D’Aeth, assembles chapters that spin off from Riane Eisler’s model of ‘domination versus partnership’ and consider how it might be applied to contemporary environmental challenges. The authors read Tim Winton’s white settler attempts at connection to land against Eileen Moreton-Robinson’s assertion of incommensurable Indigenous difference and anthropological ideas about animism."
