  1. The Recombinant BGH Controversy in the United States: Toward a New Consumption Politics of Food? [REVIEW]Frederick H. Buttel - 2000 - Agriculture and Human Values 17 (1):5-20.
    The history of the controversy overrecombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) is exploredin terms of the issue of the potential robustness ofa consumption-driven ``new'' politics of food andagriculture. It is noted that while the dominanthistorical traditions in the social sciences haveserved to discount the autonomous role that consumersand consumption play in modern societies, there hasbeen growing interest in consumption within foodstudies as well as other bodies of scholarship such aspostmodernism, social constructivism, socialcapital/social distinction, and environmentalsociology. A review of the shifting pattern (...)

    Agricultural Research and Farm Structural Change: Bovine Growth Hormone and Beyond. [REVIEW]Frederick H. Buttel - 1986 - Agriculture and Human Values 3 (4):88-98.
    Emerging bovine somatotropin (or “bovine growth hormone” [bGH]) technology has become highly controversial even though the technology is one to two years from commercial introduction. The bGH controversy is discussed and placed in the context of the evolution of the American public agricultural research system and farm structural change over the past 15 years. It is argued that while many observers tend to overestimate the degree to which bGH will be representative of other biotechnologies applied to agriculture, the bGH case (...)

    Ideology and Agricultural Technology in the Late Twentieth Century: Biotechnology as Symbol and Substance. [REVIEW]Frederick H. Buttel - 1993 - Agriculture and Human Values 10 (2):5-15.
    The significance of biotechnology in agriculture during the late twentieth century has been as much in the realm of symbol and ideology as in its political economy. The ideological roots of biotechnology are long historical ones. The ideology of “productivism,” which was codified during mid-century out of a coincidence of interest among experiment stations, USDA, Congress, agribusiness, and agricultural commodity groups, has encountered numerous challenges since the 1970s. One of the major responses to the crisis of productionism was to forge (...)

    The Rural Social Sciences: An Overview of Research Institutions, Tools, and Knowledge for Addressing Problems and Issues. [REVIEW]Frederick H. Buttel - 1987 - Agriculture and Human Values 4 (1):42-65.
    This paper seeks to provide a broad overview of the historical, contemporary, and future roles of the rural social sciences. This overview is preceded by a brief elaboration of a model of the social, political, and economic structure of experiment station research organizations which is helpful in identifying the particular types of agricultural and social sciences research that have tended to be conducted in land-grant institutions. Agricultural economics and rural sociology are given particular emphasis in the next section of the (...)
