Purdue University Press
William I. Myers and the Modernization of American Agriculture is teh first book-length study of one of the leaders of the twentieth-century effort to transform farming from a way of life into a science and a business. This biography of Myers offers an opportunity to deal with a central theme of agricultural history - the triumph of modernization over agrarianism. Author Douglas Slaybaugh deftly uses that theme to define the meaning of life.
