About this book

A broad-gauged exploration of the intersections of farming and history. Beginning with the prehistorical era, the authors describe the evolution of farming, before presenting a fresh and informed perspective on how farming and the crops we grow have changed us and our environment. By understanding the nature of the origins and evolution of agriculture, we will be better prepared to anticipate what the future may hold in store, and what must be done to increase food production while minimizing environmental problems.
