The first chapter offers an historical and cultural perspective for why cooperatives can revive rural America. The second and third chapters recall personal experience in both studying and tripping over irreversible changes in agriculture and world markets. The middle three chapters explore successful cooperative in the Netherlands, in America, and alternative American communities that continue to succeed by maintaining a strong cooperative spirit. The final three chapters look ahead, at the technology and knowledge transfers between countries, at the tools American states are using to promote economic development, and at the creative explosion of new cooperative ventures.
Very Good. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. "Agriculture is changing from a way of life to a business, anda business that manufactures food products rather than raises commodities. Egerstrom has documented this change with numerous anecdotes and vignettes that relate to people and place rather than statistics. His fundamental theme, that farmers through collective activities and specifically through cooperatives can shape the transformation of the food system and rural communities is not only interesting and enjoyable reading but should stimulate and challenge farm leaders...."
