Industrializing the Corn Belt Agriculture, Technology, and Environment, 1945-1972 Press Reviews

Through a carefully researched investigation of Iowa, J. L. Anderson...delivers a renegade interpretation that highlights farmers as the primary agents of agrarian change. An illuminating case, powerful analysis, and a poignant story. --The Journal of American History An excellent piece of historical research. There is no other book that deals in depth and breadth with the important subjects considered here. --Allan Bogue, University of Wisconsin For too long, American agriculture in the post-war era has been the domain of economists and rural sociologists. With a historian's touch--focusing first and foremost on the farmers themselves--Anderson provides a fresh, compelling treatment of this crucial period of immense social, economic, technological, and environmental change. --David Vaught, Texas A&M University Anderson's work [has] a nuance that writiers who focus on the net effect of agricultural change often miss. --Journal of Illinois History [This] book is well worth reading....The impact of the revolution Anderson recounts affects all Americans. --The Annals of Iowa
