Editorial Reviews

Review

“A compelling picture of one of this country's most pressing problems…a vivid and concise description of America's farm crisis.”—Kirkus Reviews



“The most comprehensive yet accessible book on the rural crisis in a generation. Davidson's examination of the rural radical right is thorough and chilling. Excellent work!”—Daniel Levitas, Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights
