In this survey of the history of American agriculture from 1607 to the present, Willard Cochrane provides an analysis of US agricultural development. Cochrane first offers a general history of agriculture in America, then continues with an extensive examination of the structural, political, and economic forces that have shaped American agriculture through the years. Finally, a thought-provoking theoretical model of agricultural development in the United States for the period 1950-90 is provided. In addition to fully updated historical and statistical material, the revised edition of "The Development of American Agriculture" emphasizes the impact of the widened international market on American agriculture and includes a new chapter on the impact of environmental policy on agricultural development. "The Development of American Agriculture" is an indispensable resource for anyone concerned with economic development in general and agricultural economic development in particular.
