Abstract:

In 1968, the director of USAID coined the term 'green revolution' to celebrate the new technological solutions that promised to ease hunger around the world - and forestall the spread of more 'red, ' or socialist, revolutions. Yet in China, where modernization and scientific progress could not be divorced from politics, green and red revolutions proceeded side by side. In this book, Sigrid Schmalzer explores the intersection of politics and agriculture in socialist China through the diverse experiences of scientists, peasants, state agents, and 'educated youth.'
