The book evaluates the success of the modern agricultural revolution, which has transformed British farming since the abandonment of free trade in 1931. Originating from wartime necessity, the process has continued unabated to the present day. The impetus for increased food production was provided first through British government intervention and later by European policies of the CAP. Scientific and technological innovations that made farming the economic success that it is have also brought about the scourge of overproduction, environmental degradation and overcapacity among the farming fraternity. Agriculture has reached a watershed, when policy-makers for the twenty-first century might like to reflect on lessons that can be learned from the past.
