Selfishly, this issue is extra exciting because it’s a new opportunity to see my name in print, and my writing in publication. Even more exciting, I was able to help promote a thoughtful book that I found intellectually stimulating, historically well-researched, and extremely relevant to food conversations in twenty-first century America. In short, I authored a review of Rose Hayden-Smith’s Sowing the Seeds of Victory: American Gardening Programs of World War I (Jefferson, NC: McFarland & Co., 2014). Read it yourself here: Review of Hayden-Smith, Sowing the Seeds of Victory.
Just coincidentally, as I was looking for the cover-image of the book for this blogpost, I saw that around the same time I was first submitting my review to GAFS, my colleague Chris Deutch also reviewed it, on H-Net (cross-posted on H-Environment and H-War). Read his review here. We largely concur -- how validating!
