Editorial Reviews

Review

"Keith Warner has done us a great favour in a very engaging way. In parallel to a candid assessment of the pervading obstacles to the advancement of agroecology in the United States, he has presented that which is working and why through a number of stories in a highly readable format....Thanks to Warner for a hopeful piece about American agriculture." Constance L. Neely Agricultural Systems



"This book addresses a quiet revolution in California agriculture, an important story that few people know. It provides a powerful analytic tool for anyone investigating collaborative efforts to prevent pollution and promote environmental protection in food and fiber."--David Runsten, UCLA School of Public Affairs, and Executive Director, Community Alliance with Family Farmers



"Warner demonstrates that the evolution of ecologically sound agricultural practices is not likely to occur without a coordinated effort that combines science-based knowledge, experience-based information, well executed social dynamics, and political support. He does a masterful job of making this case, which is grounded both in sound ecological and social theory and in actual case studies. This book will make a significant contribution to deliberations on the future of land-grant universities as they reinvent themselves for the 21st century." Frederick L. Kirschenmann , Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, Iowa State University
