Editorial Reviews

Review

"A must read for individuals interested in the structure of agriculture, environmental legislation, or political science focusing on regulation."--"Journal of Political Ecology"

"An incisive, sophisticated analysis of the history of federal planning for the conservation of agricultural land."--"Journal of American History"

"A sophisticated, well-written, and thoughtful analysis of farmland protection policy in the twentieth century."--"American Historical Review"

"A fresh perspective on the implications for federal regulation of privately owned agricultural land. . . . [and] a thorough analysis of how environmental policy and agricultural policy began to intersect at the federal level in the 1970s."--"Environmental History"

"Soundly researched in unique materials, this study of the movement to preserve farmland and the reasons for its failure in the weak provisions of the Federal Farm Act of 1985 makes an original contribution to the study of farm politics in the twentieth century and of Congressional policy-making. It is another case of losing a cause by compromising it to death and confusing its supporters; but Lehman stands by the conservationists and makes the most of his materials."--Morton Rothstein, University of California, Davis
