I will be discussing Let’s Ask Marion with Clark Wolf as part of the Fales Library Critical Topics Series at 5:00 p.m., via Zoom. It’s free but registration is required—here.
Weekend reading: Supermarket USA
Shane Hamilton. Supermarket USA: Food and Power in the Cold War Farms Race. Yale University Press, 2018.
I did a blurb for this one:
Who knew that supermarkets, of all things, were key elements of U.S. free-enterprise, anti-Soviet, Cold War propaganda. Hamilton fully explains how “farm wars” led directly to today’s international industrial agribusinesses. This superb book is a must-read.
