520    "The concept of terroir (the unique quality that a 
       particular habitat imparts to food) and practices of 
       organic farming are essential to the image of French food 
       and are assumed to have developed alongside a left-leaning
       political tradition. However, as Venus Bivar reveals, the 
       origins of organic farming and food actually lie with the 
       far right. This book narrates the rise of organic farming 
       in France, showing the dark side of the concept of terroir
       that became an inspiration to farmers, chefs, and taste-
       makers worldwide. As Bivar demonstrates, many of the 
       earliest proponents of organic agriculture had ties to the
       fascist politics of Vichy and the eugenics movement. 
       Quality for these white Catholic men was about purity and 
       the regeneration of the French race through a superior 
       organic diet"--|cProvided by publisher
