Academic and Business Perspectives of Automotive Industry
Raising Cane in the 'Gladesis the first study to situate the environmental transformation of the Everglades within the economic and historical geography of global sugar production and trade. Using, among other sources, interviews, government and corporate documents, and recently declassified U. State Department memoranda, Gail M. Hollander demonstrates that the development of Florida's sugar region was the outcome of pitched battles reaching the highest political offices in the U. Hollander uses the sugar question as a thread to stitch together past and present, local and global, in explaining Everglades transformation.

Big Sugar Summit Follow-Up
Gail Hollander brings the sugar story home to the Florida Everglades where the story of 'Big Sugar' bears all the hallmarks of a sort of frontier capitalism. Hollander''s compelling narrative and deep historical excavation reveals brilliantly how the sugar question and the astounding conversion of the Florida Everglades from a swamp wasteland to an endangered wetland are inextricably intertwined.
In our addiction to sweetness lies, as Hollander reveals in her magisterial retelling of the history of the Florida sugar bowl, the hidden, and not-so-hidden, histories of American empire, the cold war, the long arm of agrarian capital and the dark side of government regulation.
A tour de force. Unwilling to settle for a more 'traditional' analysis that would highlight just one aspect of this complex story economy, or politics, or ecology, or culture , Hollander artfully balances these differing approaches to create a far more complex, but ultimately far more pointed, analysis of this highly disputed piece of human geography.

The book both adds original empirical material and deepens thinking within an important intellectual tradition concerned with the nego- tiability of property established by the likes of Sally Falk Moore and Sara Berry. While each case is grounded in its own local context, it is also necessarily linked — to greater or lesser extents — to other complex factors, internal and external, historical and contemporary.
Lund begins his laying down of tracks with the base tones of history. Chapter two provides an outline of colonial land policies in northern Ghana. The failure to comprehend or accept multiple relationships to land and multiple authorities over land corresponded with the British colonial compulsion to create state-like, governable entities where these did not formerly exist.
Significant in northern Ghana — and with effects that would carry through the twentieth century and into the next millennium — was the misrecognition and elevation of the role of the chief in land matters, while simultaneously disregarding and dislodging the central figure of the earth- priest.
It took until the late s and s for serious debate on the matter to enter colonial administrative discourse and affect policies on land and customary authority. Such debate reflected ongoing tensions within the administration regarding not only appropriate forms of customary land tenure, but native administration in general, resulting in various policy swings and compromises.
This new set of ambiguities precipitated varied contestations between chiefs and earthpriests and their respective lineages, between state and non-state authorities, and between different authorities and ordinary land users. Such disputes inten- sified in relation to the increasing monetary value of land in certain locations, as well as the financial gains from land allocation practices. In chapter five we see how elements of these arguments play out in various urban and peri-urban settings in and around Bolgatanga, within a context of changing political, economic, constitutional and institutional framing.
At the same time, it offers a disillusioning vision of the way nature can be totally ignored in the scramble for profit.
If anyone had doubts before about the profoundly politicized nature of sugar, through the centuries and to this day, this book should surely dispel them. Tracing the transformation of the Everglades from wetlands to an agro-industrial empire built on sugar, and maybe even back to wetlands again, Hollander shows how political struggles over subsidies, labor practices, and the environment come together to shape a landscape and its meanings. In compelling detail and with compelling writing , Hollander traces out the local, regional, and national struggles, together with the global politics of the sugar trade, that have made the Everglades what they are, and what they might be.
This is a book to keep on learning from. Essential reading for those interested in the contested politics of global agricultural systems, regionalism, race and class as they were played out in the shaping and reshaping of the Florida Everglades. In our addiction to sweetness lies, as Hollander reveals in her magisterial retelling of the history of the Florida sugar bowl, the hidden, and not-so-hidden, histories of American empire, the cold war, the long arm of agrarian capital and the dark side of government regulation.
