The Reluctant Farmer

An exploration of work, social class & the production of food


There are few social issues more pressing than the seemingly disparate issues of social class and safe food. This book illustrates the ways in which food production, work, and social class are intertwined in a way that puts our collective health at risk. At this point in history, discourse about food production has become “classed language,” language designed to show one’s place in the social stratosphere. Consequently, this shift in the function of discourse about food production has focused attention away from the three major issues facing farmers in the United States.
