Welcome to H-Rural, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. The primary purpose of H-Rural is to facilitate discussions about scholarship and teaching in rural and agricultural history. We welcome contributions such as conference announcements, calls for papers, course syllabi, conference reports, news of new datasets, and other items related to our focus, rural and agricultural history over time and place.
I am delighted to announce that two books I have edited have been published:
Kym Anderson and Vicente Pinilla (eds.), Wine Globalization. A New Economic History, Cambridge University Press, 2018
Would love opinions from those in various disciplines on this:
Schultz's Transforming Traditional Agriculture and Boserup's Conditions of Agricultural Growth appeared in 1964 and 1965. Both are landmarks but the books had some crucial differences, especially in the importance of external inputs in peasant agriculture. Which would you say has been more influential in the end?
This is for something I'm writing that would benefit from some differing perspectives.
Anthropology, Washington Univ.
I am delighted to announce that my book Organic Resistance: The Struggle Over Industrial Farming in Postwar France was just published as part of an environmental studies series with UNC Press.
From the UNC Website:
Does anyone, by any chance, have a program from the History of Agriculture and the Environment: A Symposium held at the National Archives in June of 1991?
