This timely collection provides a general overview and detailed discussion of social and technical issues related to moving toward a culture and practice of sustainable agriculture in the American Midwest. It develops the concept that because agriculture does not exist in isolation, sustainability must be understood within the context of the many dynamic natural and social systems characteristic of a particular region - from climate to culture. Scholars from diverse disciplines - ecology, geography, economics, agricultural engineering, anthropology, entomology, climatology - provide the historical and contemporary context for this vital discussion.
