Weekend reading: Organic Struggle
Brian K. Obach. Organic Struggle: The Movement for Sustainable Agriculture in the United States. MIT Press, 2015.
Here’s my blurb:
Brian Obach has written an important book for everyone who produces, buys, or considers buying organically produced foods. This is a well-researched and utterly riveting history of the issues that unite and divide organic farmers and consumers, firmly grounded in the political context of classic social movements. If you want to advocate for healthier and more sustainable food systems, you must read this book.
