In his book, Problems of Plenty: The American Farmer in the Twentieth Century, R. Douglas Hurt explores the issues surrounding farmers¿ dependency on government subsidies to survive. I like the book because it is organized in an orderly, reader-friendly manner and Hurt also remains neutral while using the history of farming to raise many controversial issues, but he does not cover potential solutions and is lacking important information and data on non-agricultural issues. The book does a great job explaining why farm policy is what it is today. The book was a great source for my class work and helped me to understand how some of the current farming techniques and policies were developed.Was this review helpful?
