Présentation de l'éditeur

Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of synonyms and antonyms for difficult and often ambiguous English words that are encountered in other works of literature, conversation, or academic examinations. Extremely rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority in the notes compared to words which are ¿difficult, and often encountered¿ in examinations. Rather than supply a single synonym, many are provided for a variety of meanings, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of the English language, and avoid using the notes as a pure crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not noted on a page, chances are that it has been highlighted on a previous page. A more complete thesaurus is supplied at the end of the book; synonyms and antonyms are extracted from Webster's Online Dictionary.

I first read this in the Small Farm Journal. It recounts the ingenuity and hard work that Chinese employ to make the most of resources. Some of the grainy photographs were included there, but this republication does not include the photographs which I think are important.

really good book 17 novembre 2008

Format: Broché
This was a well written book that provided a lot of knowledge not just about ancient farming knowledge but even ancient conservation techniques. If you like organic or natural farming then you will find this book a good read.

First published in 1911, with a preface by Dr. L. H. Bailey, Farmers of Forty Centuries is the kind of book that would be of interest to farmers and historians alike.

This book was written at time in society when 'better living through chemistry' was just starting to take hold as mainstream thinking. Reductionist science, pesticides, and fertilizer were gaining strength and agriculture was changing from a point of view that works with the natural processes to a system that conquers and controls plants natural impulses. Taking into account the time when this book was written, and one can see that it is an important book in the history of agriculture and an excellent reference for modern farmers that might have been lost if not for the dedication of people who converted it to e-text.

The preface by Dr Bailey, discusses where American agriculture stands at the turn of the last century (1900). It mentions how farming in the North America is very successful, and acknowledged that this is primarily because the population density of the continent is sparse and people have been cultivating the soil for a relatively short time. Bailey mentions that in order to properly conquer the land and turn it to our needs (common attitude of the time)we must be careful not to strip it of fertility. Chemical farming alone will do this over time; however, by examining agricultural practices that have sustained themselves for long periods without loosing soil fertility - then american farming can be even more productive (shame this wasn't taken to heart at the time).

The book itself is examines agricultural practices in some of the most densely populated areas of the world at the time in hopes of gleaming some useful information.

Given where we are now with industrialized farming, this book might just be what we need to help understand how we can regain some of the waste farmland that now has very little or no agricultural use thanks to poor management practices over the last 100 years.

The kindle version has no interactive menus, no way of quick navigation and no pictures. But there are no obvious errors in the text.

This book is perfect for both small farmers and large scale agri-business.

A bit overly optimistic 12 janvier 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur

Having read this book first, then "Foundations of Japan" whch was written a few years later, I am inclined to agree with the comment made in "Foundations" that this book was written with a somewhat rosy outlook. That said, as with "Foundations" this is a set of observations on topics made by a traveller skilled in those areas, and in this case by one who had an ecological perspective somewhat more in line with today rathar than his early 1900's contemporaries. With the aid of hindsight, it's interesting to note how the author used examples of how things were done in the farming cultures of Japan and China to try and encourage American agriculture to incorporate crop rotation, complimentary plantings, organic composting, etc..
