Description - Harvest of Dissent by Thomas Summerhill

Harvest of Dissent brings together the events of nearly a century of agrarian radicalism in central New York, including the Anti-Rent movement and the Grange movement, to mark political, economic, and social transformations in the emergence of modern America. Reexamining the nature of northern farmers' embrace of or resistance to the emergence of capitalist market agriculture, Thomas Summerhill convincingly demonstrates how protracted and contingent the process of drawing farmers into capitalist markets actually was, and the ways farmers selectively and creatively resisted it.
