Front Porch Republic's Katherine Dalton calls for a "conversation that might lead us to solve the nagging problem of how to feed both ourselves and the multi-billions of people worldwide our future is likely to hold, and away from wranglings over farm subsidies to Manhattanites and the food stamp program" — Eating for Another Fifty (Centuries).

Perhaps it's time to dust off Franklin Hiram King's tome, this year celebrating its centennial — Farmers of Forty Centuries; Or, Permanent Agriculture in China, Korea, and Japan.
