Olsen, is Under the Blade: The Conversion of Agricultural Landscapes (1998). Lyson is currently an Associate Editor of the Journal of Sustainable Agriculture.


"[Lyson] provides an excellent historical context on how Northeast growers, who traditionally sold their products in local urban markets, have been able to resist somewhat the pressures to go corporate and in the current century, preserve their land by embracing the CSAs, farmers' markets, and other forms of civic agriculture."-- "The Community Farm"

An eye-opening read recommended for collections on agriculture, community development, economics of food production and sociology.-- "Academia"
