About this book

This book deals with an important and timely issue: the political and economic forces that have shaped agricultural policies in the United States during the past eighty years. It explores the complex interactions of class, market, and state as they have affected the formulation and application of agricultural policy decisions since the New Deal, showing how divisions and coalitions within Southern, Corn Belt, and Wheat Belt agriculture were central to the ebb and flow of price supports and production controls.

In addition, the book highlights the roles played by the world economy, the civil rights movement, and existing national policy to provide an invaluable analysis of past and recent trends in supply management policy.

Media reviews
The Politics of Food Supply traces the fate of New Deal agricultural policies that were the mainstay of federal policy until the 1990s. In a fascinating historical account, Bill Winders explains why a nation wedded to a free market ideology has provided price supports for each of the major crops-corn, cotton and wheat-in its agricultural policy. A pathbreaking contribution to political sociology and comparative historical sociology.-Jill Quadagno, author of One Nation, Uninsured: Why the US Has No National Health Insurance
