Farmers of Forty Centuries
Farmers of Forty Centuries; Or, Permanent Agriculture in China, Korea, and Japan is a book of Asian farming. We have not yet gathered up the experience of mankind in the tilling of the earth; yet the tilling of the earth is the bottom condition of civilization. If we are to assemble all the forces and agencies that make for the final conquest of the planet, we must assuredly know how it is that all the peoples in all the places have met the problem of producing their sustenance out of the soil.
