"The book is splendidly detailed, a definitive work on its subject, clear and coherent, a well-digested mass of source material.... [L]et me recommend it as a vast storehouse of sources, of detailed research and exploration of its subject." - Peter Hunt, The Chesterton Review; "The book is carefully crafted, well written...and should appeal especially to political scientists, economists, sociologists, social historians, and those nostalgic people whose antecedents are rooted in the family farm prior to World War II." - R. Alton Lee, Journal of Church and State; "Carlson...provides a lucid and thoroughly-learned survey of agrarianism's 20th century advocates.... This concise and richly informative book is the single best source on New Agrarianism's perspective.... Anyone wishing to learn what agrarianism has to offer should start here." - John Attarian, Culture Wars"
