At the time Bach wrote the book, he and his wife were living in Palos Verdes, California. In those days before emission standards, things in the L.A. area tended to appear bright and sunny but a bit too hazy, and one could argue that Bach’s outlook in What’s Right with the World suffers from the same effect.

This book includes 20 different chapters, where the authors have addressed various aspects of the cultivation, taxonomy, socio-economic importance and breeding and development as applied to neglected and underutilized crops. While they sound like a breed that can be obtained through say, genetically modified crops, these future smart foods are actually our traditional crops—chino, kagunu, millet, colocasia, local beans, local chillies and so on—crops that were often neglected and underutilised.

Simply speaking, future smart food is the rebranding of these. Conceived as a project by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Neglected crops: from a different perspective was copublished with the Botanical Garden of Córdoba, Spain.

This cooperation came about as a result of the "Etnobotánica 92" congress, convened in September by the Botanical Garden and the City of Córdoba. Neglected and underutilized crops are important not only for their significant contribution to human nutrition, but also because they have been a source for traditional medicine for a long time.

Nowadays, these plants also play a crucial role in modern medicine. The neglected crops categorised as ‘minor crops’ have lesser importance globally in terms of production and market value. They could become an excellent source for useful gene source.

Published in collaboration with the Botanical Garden of Cord ba (Spain) as part of the Etnobot nica92 Programme (Andalusia, ).Several of Africa's now neglected cereals could become major contributors to the welfare of nations around the world.

All this could stimulate pan-African cooperation and international endeavors to ensure that these crops are lost no more. This book has been produced under the auspices of the Board on Science and Technology for.Promoting the use of underutilized species (vegetables, fruit, starchy crops and condiments) needs to be achieved by highlighting their importance in their current production areas as well as exploiting further opportunities to extend their production and consumption.
