Geopolitics and the Green Revolution explores why four different countries (USA, India, Britain, and Mexico) each sought to develop high yielding wheat production. National security concerns and management of foreign exchange were prime motivators of the new technologies, a relationship that has not been previously developed in studies of agricultural modernization. Future reform efforts in agriculture will be affected by this history.
