About this product
- DescriptionThis book explores how the recent restructuring of farming and industry has affected ecomic and social equality in the United States. The author explains how the farm sector has undergone a dramatic restructuring with profound effects. Moderate-size family farms, the mainstay of American agriculture, have declined during the postwar period and are w under severe financial stress. Large-scale industrialized farms - the factories in the field, often run by corporations - continue to expand their share of agricultural sales while small farms operated on a part-time basis appear to be replacing traditional family farming. Lobao shows that public concern about farm restructuring is indeed warranted and that the nation w appears to be losing its most beneficial farms as well as industries. While local and regional social and ecomic forces and state policy can be brought to bear on these trends, Lobao particulary focuses on how community empowerment and broad-based political coalitions offer the most promise for fundamental change.
