Global history of organic farming
Barton, Greg author
Oxford, U K : Oxford University Press, 2018
Roots of the organic challenge -- The cultural soil of organic farming -- Albert Howard and the world as Shropshire -- The Howards in India -- The search for pre-modern wisdom -- The compost wars -- To the empire and beyond -- The globalization of organic farming -- The 1980s to the present -- Organic farming and the challenge of globalization.

"This book tells the untold story of the organic farming movement and its massive impact on the world of agriculture and society. Organic farming turned the gaze of millions of people, institutions, and governments backwards to look at the past as a source of guidance and wisdom. It changed our consumer habits and our ethics, demanding that we think about how our food is grown and the effect our daily habits have on nature. Based on newly discovered archives, it also reveals the towering personalities of Albert Howard and his second wife Louise as overlooked champions of the environmental movement."--

Tomatoland : from harvest of shame to harvest of hope
Estabrook, Barry, author
Kansas City, Missouri : Andrews McMeel Publishing, [2018]
Introduction : On the tomato trail -- Roots -- A tomato grows in Florida -- Chemical warfare -- From the hands of a slave -- An unfair fight -- A penny per pound -- Uncharted territory -- Judgment -- Harvest of hope -- Slavery 2.0 -- Building a better tomato -- Wild things.

"Three-time James Beard Award-winner Barry Estabrook's completely revised third edition of his hard-hitting 2011 exposé, Tomatoland, includes a new foreword by Eric Schlosser and four new chapters with startling updates. Four entirely new chapters take up where the current edition leaves off to tell the story behind what president Bill Clinton calls "the most astonishing thing politically in the world we're living in today." Estabrook reveals how a rag-tag group of migrant tomato pickers in Florida convinced the world's largest restaurant chains and food retailers to join forces to create a model for labor justice, and then took the necessary steps to make sure that the model really works, not only in Florida, but around the world."--Amazon.com.
