Abstract: Tobacco and its impacts on human health and the environment are well documented, but less has been written about the lives of tobacco producers. In Tobacco Culture, van Willigen and Eastwood help fill this void by providing a rich local history of tobacco growing, starting with the early producers in the New World and leading up to the contemporary battles of global competition for tobacco, but focusing mainly on the impact of these changes on the remaining Kentucky producers.
