The Development of the Organic Network: Linking People and Themes, 1945-95
'Once again Philip Conford has produced a book in which the clarity and elegance of the writing parallels the clarity and elegance of his thought. In a tour de force mercifully free of theoretical musings he examines the complexities, tensions and contradictions within the modern organic movement and in considering its varied dramatis personae reflects upon the broader philosophical issues. A wide-ranging and often controversial account, it is essential reading for all those concerned with Green issues, food quality and the modern history of British agriculture.' -- Richard Moore-Colyer, Professor of Agrarian History at the University of Wales 'An authoritative, comprehensive and wide-ranging account of the development of organic agriculture and horticulture during the second half of the twentieth century. The author identifies the key individuals and organizations responsible for transforming organic growing from an unappreciated fringe activity into the force it is today, detailing its philosophical, scientific and spiritual underpinnings. Conford explores the influence on, and cross-fertilisation with, the environmental movement, the wholefood tradition, and issues such as animal welfare, vegetarianism and food safety. Thoroughly enjoyable, utterly engrossing, and magisterial in scope, this book should be read by everyone who cares about how our food is produced.' -- Alan Gear, former Director of the Organic Gardens, Ryton 'Philip Conford is the great historian of the organic movement, and this book brings the story almost to the present day. Anyone hoping to understand the idealism, contradictions, and fundamental importance of the movement must read Conford's work.' -- Eric Schlosser, journalist and author of Fast Food Nation 'Philip Conford is without question our movement's most authoritative living historian. It has been a source of great comfort to me to know that as a chapter of agricultural history in which I have been personally involved has unfolded, Philip has been there quietly observing and accurately recording the events. In bearing witness to this important story, it touches me, that despite the strength of his own opinions in relation to what he has observed, which occasionally almost surface between the lines, as my army uncle used to say, 'he keeps a lid on them', his first allegiance always being to the truth.' -- Patrick Holden, Director of the Sustainable Food Trust and former Director of the Soil Association 'With his extensive knowledge. Insight and intellect, Phillip Conford should be considered a "treasure" to the organic movement. No one else is able to write with such authority or such a broad view on our movement, past and present. This book really is a must for anyone who considers themselves a part of the organic network. It's likely this will become one of the classic texts on organic food and farming, sitting alongside the likes of The Living Soil and An Agricultural Testament in its importance and impact on the network in the present and future. The combination of story-telling with reasoning is the real strength of this book, underpinned by true academic rigour and extensive research.' -- The Organic Grower Magazine 'My congratualtions are in order and a very important contribution has been made to this period of the history of the organic movement, much remarkable information is included to support the notion that a deep influence is exerted on our western society to change its ways.' -- Star & Furrow 'Our movement is lucky to have such a trustworthy and reliable biographer in Philip Conford, a regular Living Earth contributor. His second volume of British organic history covers the period fromm 1945 until the mid-1990s with a compelling mix of storytelling, insight and aplomb. This is a great read for anyone interested in food and farming, but also a reminder that the roots of the organic movement run much deeper.' --The Soil Association 'If you have a thirst for background knowledge you will find this thick volume irresistible. Not only is the text well researched, thorough and informative but the author provides detailed appendices on leading figures, groups and recorded interviews; this in addition to endnotes, bibliography and indez to make it a worthy reference book. Moreover, the writing style of the main text is engaging, combining statement of fact with personal opinion in a most palatable form...Philip Conford is well qualified to produce this master work.' --The Organic Living Association. 'Conford's hugely impressive and assiduous book is more than a who's who of the organic movement, though it is that too. It frames some of the most powerful forms of anti-establishment agricultural and environmental thinking along with an effort to demonstrate the scentific rigour that was brought to the table; moreover, it connects the discussions and influences to give an important picture of the challenges and development of one of the most important agricultural movements of our age. Without a hint of sentimentality or bias, Conford has written a deeply sensible book, separated from the distracting passions of modern media, and which proves to be one that is indispensible for anyone who wishes to discuss organic farming in the UK. Though it doesn't deal explicitly with scientific theories (that's not the point), it does provide you with everything you could possibly need to know on the post-war era in organic farming, and to see just what its key figures were up against. In Jonathan Porritt's introduction to the book, he suggests 'these battles with every aspect of orthodoxy and 'establishment thinking' provide an inspiring testament to the work of countless champions over the decades.' This is the lingering impression that the book gives us, and for that Conford is to be congratulated: it is a powerful legacy to the organic innovators.' -- Mark Newton, The Ecologist
