Editorial Reviews

Review

In an ambitious attempt to synthesize research and findings on US agriculture over the last century, Gardner...examines technology (both mechanical and biotechnical inventions and innovations), government policies, measurement of costs and benefits, and incomes of farms and households, elements considered basic to increases in productivity...Gardner's study shows that agricultural output has grown immensely, productivity has increased manifold, and that farm population and labor have declined radically in proportion to the population and the labor force. (E. H. Tuma Choice 2003-01-01)

Economists, including agricultural economists, will find this book of significant. (D. Gale Johnson, University of Chicago)

I believe that the book will make an important contribution to agricultural economics and to the economic history of U.S. agriculture during the twentieth century. (Wallace Huffman, Iowa State University)

In this important study of American agriculture during the century just past, the distinguished agricultural economist Bruce L. Gardner explores…important issues surrounding this vital U.S. industry, from technology and farm communities to markets and policy implications. Gardner works familiar ground, but he does it with the skills of an economist who knows how to make his findings reasonably accessible to the interested noneconomist. (Virgil W. Dean The Historian)
