about

This innovative text provides a compelling narrative world history through the lens of food and farmers. Tracing the history of agriculture from earliest times to the present, Christopher Isett and Stephen Miller argue that people, rather than markets, have been the primary agents of agricultural change, exploring the actions taken by individuals and groups over time. Analyzing their activities in the wider contexts of markets, states, wars, the environment, population increase, and similar factors, the authors emphasize how larger social and political forces inform decisions and lead to different technological outcomes.
Christopher Isett is associate professor of history at the University of Minnesota. Stephen Miller is associate professor of history at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
