New Working History Podcast: Beef: Exploitation, Innovation, and How Meat Changed America

Tuesday, June 25, 2019 7:47 AM | Beth English (Administrator)

On SLSA’s latest Working History podcast, "Beef: Exploitation, Innovation, and How Meat Changed America," Joshua Specht discusses his new book, Red Meat Republic: A Hoof-to-Table History of How Beef Changed America (Princeton University Press 2019), and how the history of beef production tells the story of broad changes in the American economy, society and political landscape during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Joshua Specht is Lecturer in History at Monash University in Australia. He is a historian of the nineteenth-century United States, and uses approaches from environmental history to study topics that have traditionally been the focus of business or economic history.
