FROM WHERE I SIT: Essays on Bees, Beekeeping, and Science.
Edition: First printing.
Ithica, NY: Cornell University Press, (1998.) dj. Hardcover first edition - "Winston uses beekeeping as a starting point to discuss broader issues, such as how agriculture functions under increasingly complex social and environmental restraints, how scientists grapple with issues of accountability, and how people struggle to maintain contact with the natural world. Winston's reflections on bees, beekeeping, and science cover a period of tumultuous change in North America, a time when new parasites, reduced research funding, and changing economic conditions have disrupted the livelihoods of bee farmers." The difficulties facing beekeepers have only increased since this book was published, making it more timely than ever, and the problem of adulterated honey continues. Foreword by Eva Crane. x, 171 pp. ISBN: 0-8014-34777.
