Author Talk — The Global Seeds of American Agriculture
While there is enormous public interest in biodiversity, food sourcing, and sustainable agriculture, romantic attachments to heirloom seeds and family farms have persisted alongside fantasies of an agrarian past. In her book "The Profit of Earth: The Global Seeds of American Agriculture," Courtney Fullilove unearths the history of American agricultural development, showing us how seeds became some of its most important political tools.
Courtney Fullilove is associate professor of history, environmental studies, and science in society at Wesleyan University.
