1. Why was colonialism the link for the current food crisis for Lappe and Collins? Colonialism, according to Lappe and Collins, destroyed the cultural patterns of production and exchange by which traditional societies in “underdeveloped” countries previously had met the needs of the people. 2. Compare and contrast a colonizer’s view of agriculture and those whom they conquered. The colonizer’s view on agriculture was that it was primitive and backward and that reinforced the colonizer’s rationale for destroying it. They viewed agriculture as merely a way of extracting wealth. However, prior to European intervention, Africans practiced a diversified agriculture that included the introduction of new food plants of Asian or American origin. 3. Why is colonialism the reason that people can’t feed themselves? It forced peasants to replace food crops with cash crops that were then expropriated at very low rates. It took over the best agricultural land for export crop plantations and then forced the most able-bodied workers to leave the village fields to work as slaves or for very low wages on plantations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
