Author - Masanobu Fukuoka

Amazon says, "Over the past several years, as his ideas have caught increasing attention outside his native Japan. Fukuoka has turned to address such critical global issues as ecologically destructive farming practices, desertification and deforestation. In this collection of articles, lectures and essays, Fukuoka records for the first time his impressions and observations during those travels. Like a detective solving an ancient crime, he traces man's role in the creation of vast deserts and barren lands where fertile plains and forests once layand proposes way to reverse this tide of ecological devestation before it is too late. He recounts also how he developed a superhigh-yielding variety of rice, and his incredulity and despair at the petty international seed politics that prevent the use of this miracle grain where it could do the most good. And he goes on to lucidly demonstrate the interdependence of nature, God, and man."

About the Author
On Straw Revolution says, "Masanobu Fukuoka (1913-2008) was a farmer and philosopher who was born and raised on the Japanese island of Shikoku. He studied plant pathology and spent several years working as a customs inspector in Yokohama.  While working there, at the age of 25, he had an inspiration that changed his life.  He decided to quit his job, return to his home village and put his ideas into practice by applying them to agriculture...

After The One-Straw Revolution was published in English, Mr. Fukuoka traveled to Africa, India, Southeast Asia, Europe and the United States.  His interest turned to rehabilitating the deserts of the world using his natural farming techniques. This work is described in detail in Sowing Seeds In The Desert (2012).  Mr. Fukuoka is also the author of The Natural Way of Farming and The Road Back to Nature.  In 1988 he received the Magsaysay Award, often referred to as the 'Nobel of Asia,' for Public Service"
