An innovative discussion of the influence of agrarian movements on the process of US state building between 1840 and 1980.

This groundbreaking work argues that the origins of American capitalism planted its roots in the strong farmers’ movements that were so central to the nation’s early political development. It was the combined force of these social movements and efforts at state building that converged to produce agro-industrialization in the U.S.
