Rosenfeld argues that farm women have rarely been identified as productive farm workers and that they continue to be seen only as mothers and homemakers. She shows that in addition to performing a wide range of farm work, these women in fact help ensure the farm's economic survival by contributing wages from outside employment. She raises questions about government policy and stresses the need for study in both industrialized and development societies.

"Examining how women were presented in farming and mainstream magazines over fifty years and interviewing more than 180 women who lived on farms, Lauters reveals that, rather than being victims of patriarchy, most farm women were astute businesswomen, working as partners with their husbands and fundamental to the farming industry"--Provided by publisher.

The Amish

The Amish have always struggled with the modern world. Known for their simple clothing, plain lifestyle, and horse-and-buggy mode of transportation, Amish communities continually face outside pressures to modify their cultural patterns, social organization, and religious world view. An intimate portrait of Amish life, The Amish explores not only the emerging diversity and evolving identities within this distinctive American ethnic community, but also its transformation and geographic expansion. Donald B. Kraybill, Karen M. Johnson-Weiner, and Steven M. Nolt spent twenty-five years researching Amish history, religion, and culture. Drawing on archival material, direct observations, and oral history, the authors provide an authoritative and sensitive understanding of Amish society. Amish people do not evangelize, yet their numbers in North America have grown from a small community of some 6,000 people in the early 1900s to a thriving population of more than 320,000 today. The largest populations are found in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Indiana, with additional communities in twenty-eight other states and three Canadian provinces. The authors argue that the intensely private and insular Amish have devised creative ways to negotiate with modernity that have enabled them to thrive in America. The transformation of the Amish in the American imagination from "backward bumpkins" to media icons poses provocative questions. What does the Amish story reveal about the American character, popular culture, and mainstream values? Richly illustrated, The Amish is the definitive portrayal of the Amish in America in the twenty-first century.

Partners in Production?

Women, Farm, and Family in Ireland

Partners in Production? breaks new ground as the first major study of Irish farm women. By bringing together debates about the future of family farming, feminist theories of women's work and the sociology of the family, O'Hara reveals the complex structure under which these women live. Based primarily on interviews, this book identifies the ways in which farm women both challenge and accommodate their apparent subordination, their unacknowledged influence on the evolution of family farming, their wider place in the social formation and, ultimately, how they view the circumstance of their own lives.
