For the paperback edition, I wrote a new preface that discusses the world crisis of 2007-2008. This new preface explains the connection between that food crisis -- which centered on sharply increased food prices -- and the analysis of US agricultural policy in the book.
In addition, the paperback edition is much cheaper than the hardcover, at only $22. It will be available in February 2012.
Yale University Press lists the paperback edition on its website. And, you can pre-order the paperback edition on the Barnes and Nobles website for just $18.
Amazon.com just put it up as well -- $22 per-order.
