Description


Sacred Cows and Hot Potatoes challenges many of the assumptions of current agricultural policies--such as equating farm with rural, high farm prices with high farm incomes, or farm programs with food programs--and examines the agrarian roots of these policies. From the origins of agrarian myths to the latest controversies over farming and the environment, this book provides an overview of the use and abuse of agrarian values in policymaking. Illustrated with pictures, cartoons, and graphs, the book will appeal to a broad audience, including policymakers, rural sociologists, agricultural economists, political scientists, ethicists, and the interested public.
