Summary:
This book is an enlightening look at federal agricultural policy--its workings, its history, and its present state--as well as the effect federal legislation has on farming practices, the environment, and our diet, in a thoroughly readable primer on the politics of food in America. It is the best treatment to date about how a policy area that once exemplified logrolling and deal-making confronted the contemporary realities of partisan gridlock, ideological extremism, and institutional dysfunction. Christopher Bosso succeeds in turning a classic beltway struggle into a lively account that helps the reader understand the government programs and political battles that shape how and what we eat.
