Editorial Reviews

Review

"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
