Description: The Persistence of Subsistence Agriculture shows how the new market-based world has transformed the lives of self-sufficient rural farmers. Tony Waters uses diverse examples to illustrate how the modern market economy captured persistent subsistence farmers and forever altered life in eighteenth-century Scotland, the nineteenth-century United States, twentieth-century Tanzania, and, indeed, the entire modern world.
