Strategic Plants and the Politics of National Security
Author: Mark R Finlay
Publisher: Rutgers University Press
View: 9448Growing American Rubber explores America's quest during tense decades of the twentieth century to identify a viable source of domestic rubber. Straddling international revolutions and world wars, this unique and well-researched history chronicles efforts of leaders in business, science, and government to sever American dependence on foreign suppliers. Mark Finlay plots out intersecting networks of actors including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, prominent botanists, interned Japanese Americans, Haitian peasants, and ordinary citizensùall of whom contributed to this search for economic self-sufficiency. Challenging once-familiar boundaries between agriculture and industry and field and laboratory, Finlay also identifies an era in which perceived boundaries between natural and synthetic came under review. Although synthetic rubber emerged from World War II as one solution, the issue of ever-diminishing natural resources and the question of how to meet twenty-first-century consumer, military, and business demands lingers today.
November 1932 (Classic Reprint)

View: 9701Excerpt from Golden Rod, Vol. 45: November 1932 The mate on the ferry was right when he named Larry the Lobster, for he certainly was a scavenger, now. While working for the Government, some time previously, he had followed a gang of rum-runners right up to the pier head where that big Danish boat was taking on freight and passengers. A rising fog and the dusk had spoiled everything and they had disappeared as though the landscape had swallowed them. How literally true this was, Larry did not know at the time. The ease with which they got away looked bad for him; it seemed impossible to escape without collusion, somewhere, so to satisfy all concerned, Larry's name was taken from the roster.
