Terrorism, Radicalism, and Populism in Agriculture (047038476X) cover image
While terrorism in agriculture takes few lives, the misinformation emerging from the rhetoric of anti-globalists, radical environmentalists, and animal welfare extremists costs Americans billions of dollars in lost income every year. This controversial volume illuminates the political, economic, and global effects of these groups on the agricultural industry.


The clear, concise, and readable book discusses specific events and issues, helping readers understand how radical agriculturalists think. Tweeten explains how half truths and false ideologies find their way into our political systems and bring about bad public decisions, increasing losses and causing global repercussions.


Terrorism, Radicalism, and Populism in Agriculture offers enlightenment for anyone involved in business, agriculture, policy-making and politics.
