    Liberal Democracy in the Global Era: Implications for the Agro-Food Sector. [REVIEW]Alessandro Bonanno - 1998 - Agriculture and Human Values 15 (3):223-242.
    In liberal thought, democracy is guaranteed by the unity of community and government. The community of citizens elects its government according to political preferences. The government rules over the community with powers that are limited by unalienable human, civil, and political rights. These assumptions have characterized Classical Liberalism, Revisionist Liberalism, and contemporary Neo-Liberal theories. However, the assumed unity of community and government becomes problematic in Global Post-Fordism. Recent research on the globalization of the economy and society has underscored the increasing (...)

    Agricultural Policies and the Capitalist State.Alessandro Bonanno - 1987 - Agriculture and Human Values 4 (2-3):40-46.
    The paper examines the social contradictions generated by patterns of reproduction of accumulation of capital, social legitimation and by present agricultural policies fostered by the State. Through a scrutiny of the role of the State in capitalism it is argued that agricultural overproduction, the widening of the gap between small and large farms, the fiscal crisis of the State associated with agricultural programs and waste of resources are the outcomes of an attempt on the part of the State to promote (...)

    The Restructuring of the Agricultural and Food System: Social and Economic Equity in the Reshaping of the Agrarian Question and the Food Question. [REVIEW]Alessandro Bonanno - 1991 - Agriculture and Human Values 8 (4):72-82.
    The paper investigates the characteristics of the global restructuring of the agricultural and food system that has occurred in recent years. Emphasis is placed on the emergence of the “Food and Natural Resource Question” and its relation to the “Agrarian Question.” It is argued that rather than being separate issues, these are two aspects of a unified process occurring at the global level. Moreover, it is argued that the transnational unity of the agrarian question and the food question mandates a (...)

    Global Contested Terrain: The Case of the Tuna-Dolphin Controversy. [REVIEW]Douglas H. Constance, Alessandro Bonanno & William D. Heffernan - 1995 - Agriculture and Human Values 12 (3):19-33.
    Employing the case of the global tuna-fish industry, it is argued that the process of globalization is contested terrain as it opens “free spaces” to some classes or groups and closes “free spaces” to others; that the nation-States' regulatory abilities are weakened; and finally, that while some social movements may gain, others are marginalized. Three basic conclusions are reached. (1) The industry's actions were successfully “contested” by environmental groups supported by the legislative and judicial branches of the US State. (2) (...)

    Structural and Technical Development in Agriculture: An International Overview. [REVIEW]Alessandro Bonanno - 1988 - Agriculture and Human Values 5 (1-2):92-100.
    This study investigates the socio-historical relationships existing between the development of the agricultural structure and the process of technical development. Adopting a political economy posture, it is argued that the development of technical procedures in agriculture has been aimed historically at the maximization of production and productivity. This phenomenon has been generated by the social hegemony of groups interested in the enhancement of accumulation of capital and has been translated into an emphasis on large productive units, which discriminates against small (...)

    Agriculture and Dualistic Development: The Case of Italy. [REVIEW]Alessandro Bonanno - 1989 - Agriculture and Human Values 6 (1-2):91-100.
    The article illustrates the major features of the development of Italian agriculture from the middle of the nineteenth century to the present. It is argued that such development has been characterized by dualism. At the structural level dualism refers to the existence of a large number of small and very small farms, a limited number of medium-sized farms, and the presence of a very small segment of large farms that control the bulk of agricultural production and sales. Structural dualism in (...)

    Some Reflections on Eastern European Agriculture an Introductory Essay to the Special Issue on “Agriculture in Eastern Europe”.Alessandro Bonanno - 1993 - Agriculture and Human Values 10 (1):2-10.
    This article reviews three general themes pertaining to the transformation of Eastern European agriculture from a command system to a market oriented system. The first theme deals with the diverse character of Eastern European agriculture. In a context in which the agricultures of this region are often considered homogenous, acknowledgement of the varied dimension of this sector is a key element in both analytical and political terms. The second theme pertains to the “market”. The historical and theoretical dispute over the (...)
