Angyal publishes book review

Andy Angyal, professor of English, had an academic book review of William Conlogue’s “Working the Garden: American Writers and the Industrialization of Agriculture” published in the Indiana Magazine of History XCVII (September 2002): 329-330.

Angyal writes, “The decline of the American family farm and the shift to industrial agribusiness has had enormous social, economic, and environmental consequences, but its cultural impact has been insufficiently appreciated….The failure to understand such changes in American agriculture, Conlogue argues, has resulted in critical misunderstandings of a number of major American authors, whose works actually demonstrate the decline of the family farm.”
