Description - The Failure of Agrarian Capitalism by Niek Koning
Agriculture is a highly sensitive industry. Throughout history, national governments have intervened in and subsidized their agricultural sectors. The problems of competition in agriculture have been continually illustrated by disagreement over the European Community's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and, more recently, by attempts to reform farming policy in the last round of the GATT negotiations. The Failure of Agrarian Capitalism presents a comparative analysis of agrarian politics in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and the USA from 1846-1919. The author examines the evolution of agricultural policy and the factors which motivate it. These factors are discussed in the context of the repeal of the corn laws to the first World War. This period was crucial in the failure of agriculture to establish itself as an industry independent of government.
