Beschreibung:
With an expert blend of political, social, and economic history, Thomas Summerhill's "Harvest of Dissent investigates the character of agrarian movements in nineteenth century New York to reexamine the nature of Northern farmers' embrace of or resistance to emerging capitalist market agriculture. Taking the long view, "Harvest of Dissent brings together the events of nearly a century of agrarian radicalism seeing everything from the AntiRent movement to the Grange movement as part of a whole. Based on exceptionally thorough primary research, Summerhill convincingly demonstrates how protracted and contingent the process of drawing farmers into capitalist markets actually was. Rather than characterizing farmer political insurgencies as episode responses to discrete crises (as they are often portrayed), "Harvest of Dissent argues that agrarianism played a constant role in the major political, economic, and social transformations that marked the emergence of modern America.
