Philip Conford Foreword by Jonathon Porritt

480 pp.  

Floris Books




In this far-reaching book, Philip Conford continues his survey of the British organic movement, which he began in The Origins of the Organic Movement (2001). This volume covers the movement from 1945 to the mid-1990s. It is the most thorough account of organic history to be published thus far.

Wide-ranging but closely detailed, the book examines the ways agriculture and food production became increasingly industrialized and technological during the post-war decades. In response, the organic movement urged an approach to agriculture based on awareness of ecological restraints and of the finitude of natural resources, seeking to cooperate with nature rather than dominate it.
