The Government of Beans

Book Pages: 304 Illustrations: 1 illustration Published: May 2020


The Government of Beans is an exhilarating read. Kregg Hetherington offers a brilliant theorization of agripolitics built up from the ground up through close observation of how dreams, schemes, laws and a host of small things (beans, trucks, measuring sticks, hedges, insects, traffic jams) transform lives and create new worlds. Anyone tempted by the idea that governing the Anthropocene means finding the right policy, or the right technology, or even the right kind of state, should read this book.” — Tania Murray Li, author of Land’s End: Capitalist Relations on an Indigenous Frontier
