Introduction -- The family farm hybrid, feudal-ancient subsidies and the farm woman problem -- Technical change, ancient competition and the hunt for superprofits -- Conclusion
Integrating a focus on gender with Marx's surplus-based notion of class, this book offers a one-of-a-kind analysis of family farms in the United States. The analysis shows how gender and class struggles developed during important moments in the history of these family farms shaped the trajectory of U.S. agricultural development. It also generates surprising insights about the family farm we thought we knew, as well as the food and agricultural system today
