Springer book wins Quality of Communication Award
Date:9/14/2007

The Springer book Regulating Agricultural Biotechnology: Economics and Policy, edited by Richard E. Just, Julian M. Alston, and David Zilberman, has won the Quality of Communication Award from the American Agricultural Economics Association (AAEA). The Award recognizes publications that demonstrate superior communication of concepts or knowledge in agricultural economics.

Regulating Agricultural Biotechnology: Economics and Policy assembles 33 chapters addressing the major economic issues associated with an important but poorly researched topic--the regulation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). These regulations are the major barriers for the adoption of GMOs, and the book focuses on mechanisms to reduce regulatory burdens as well as assessment of current regulatory costs. Contributors examine issues such as commercial pesticides, the costs of approving new products, liability, benefits, consumer acceptance, regulation and its impacts, transgenic crops, social welfare implications, and biosafety.
