About the Author

Matthew D. Roth is an independent scholar who lives in Philadelphia and is a staff member of the University of Pennsylvania's Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy.


"A lively, well-researched tale of how an obscure legume became the basis of a massive industry."--Wall Street Journal "Magic Bean is compelling, comprehensive, and timely. Matthew Roth has provided a well-examined study of soy's place within a long century of changing agriculture, food, diet, and culture. In the process, he offers an original and admirably wide-ranging account of soy for our time."--Benjamin R. Cohen, author of Notes from the Ground: Science, Soil, & Society in the American Countryside "A diverse cast of women and men promoted the soybean as devotedly as John Chapman did the apple, but their efforts have gone as unnoticed as soy lecithin in a chocolate bar. Matthew Roth's Magic Bean tells their stories and explains how a food often billed as a meat substitute became a linchpin of animal agriculture."--Kendra Smith-Howard, author of Pure and Modern Milk: An Environmental History Since 1900
