In this history of American agriculture over the last century, Mr. Hurt shows how farm men and women increasingly looked to the federal government--for technical information, regulation of business practices, and intervention in the agricultural economy. He surveys the major policy changes that helped shape farming both as a business and as a way of life. The best history of twentieth-century American agriculture I've ever read. A fine, fine book. --Peter A. Coclanis
