about this item

Drawing on the food regimes literature, Bauerly examines the role of agriculture in the rise of the US to global political and economic dominance. The food regimes approach locates political economic development of capitalism as emerging out of social relations of food, and connects the rise of great powers with various policies of food production or food regimes. His topics are the agro-industrial roots of the US capitalist transition through state capacity building 1830-70; the end of slavery and the southern agricultural class structure; agrarian populism: the rise and fall of populism; state institutional capacity building of the US Department of Agriculture research complex; the New Deal and agricultural state institutions capacity building; and sowing the seeds of globalization: post-war food aid, trade, and the agricultural roots of US hegemony.
