About the Author:

Dana Hoag is professor of agricultural and resource economics at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO.

From Library Journal:

A number of books have been written in the 1990s about the various economic and social problems of modern-day farming, among them Victor D. Hanson's Fields Without Dreams (LJ 1/96) and John Hildebrand's Mapping the Farm (LJ 6/1/95). Agricultural Crisis in America, by contrast, looks at agriculture in the broadest possible way. Hoag (agricultural and resource economics, Colorado State Univ., Fort Collins) identifies seven crises: farm survivability, modernization, feeding the world, safe food and water, environmental issues, urbanization, and rural-urban conflicts. Whether each of these is truly a crisis depends on one's definition of the word, but these seven broad areas do provide a coherent organization for the book. A discussion of these crises in the first chapter is supported by a later chapter of statistics and case studies for each crisis. Other chapters include biographical sketches of historical and modern figures in agriculture, a chronology of agricultural events from this country's beginnings to the present, a directory of organizations, and annotated lists of print and Internet resources. There is also a useful glossary. Agricultural Crisis in America offers a clear, balanced, up-to-date introduction to complex farm, food, technology, and environmental issues. An excellent starting point for students, researchers, and general readers, this is recommended for public, high school, and college libraries.
