About this book

The central argument of this book is that in order to appreciate the significance of the reforms themselves, and to predict where they are going, it is necessary to understand why they occurred and how they were accomplished. The book offers a unique comparative analysis of the greening process in the US and EU, connecting policy outcomes to the political battles which produced them.


Engines of destruction? the pressures for reform; the conservation new deal; agricultural stewardship in the UK; the defence of green Europe; agricultural liberalization and the doubled dividend; the environmental reform of farm policy?
