Against the Grain: How Agriculture Has Hijacked Civilization
Richard Manning (au)
A revisionist history of ag., from the domestication of plants & animals 10,000 years ago to todayís corp. mega-farms. Manning portrays an enterprise that was from its inception expansionist, & that did not so much accompany colonialism as drive it. Drawing on the work of anthropologists, biologists, archaeologists, & historians, he traces a commodification of grain that has reached its apex in contemporary agribusiness & that has helped to build some of the most familiar -- & dysfunctional -- features of our political & economic landscape. Ag. has domesticated -- enslaved -- us, & he offers thoughts on how we might recontour our path, personally & collectively, to resurrect what is most sustaining to both our own nature & the planetís.
