Management Professor Rick Molz, with Frederic Will, has written Field Research in North American Agricultural Commun-ities: Products and Profiles from the North American Family. Mellen, the book’s publisher, describes it: “The book is based on field research in agricultural communities in Chiapas [Mexico], Quebec and Iowa. It is both an academic and a warm-hearted study of the social and human factors embedded within the three agricultural communities making up the North American Free Trade Agreement.”
