Editorial Reviews

Review


One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 2001


"A good read on the origin, evolution, and contemporary politics of agricultural-support policies in the United States, France and Japan."--Foreign Affairs



"A splendid comparative study of agricultural policy processes in the US, France, and Japan."--Choice



"This historical and comparative analysis is well executed. . . . The book makes a contribution by virtue of its historical sweep and the quality of research. . . . A helpful addition to the growing body of historical institutionalist literature that demonstrates the influence of macro- and sectoral-level institutions on policymaking."--Grace Skogstad, American Political Science Review

From the Inside Flap

This is a splendid book with many admirable qualities. It makes a provocative but convincing argument that cuts against the conventional wisdom on the capacity of American institutions to withdraw established benefits. It makes an important contribution to the supremely important theoretical debate on when or whether institutions make a difference. Finally, the book displays admirable scholarship. Sheingate clearly understands the details of complicated policies during an extended period in three different countries; this is itself a major achievement.
