It highlights the complex and diversified nature of agricultural change in these contexts, and the ways in which this shapes patterns of economic and social development. Globalisation, Agriculture and Development shows that while agriculture continues to play an important role in local, regional and national development, both the industry and the communities it supports are facing an increasing number of economic, social and environmental challenges. This well-researched book will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students in development studies, development economics, geography and rural sociology, public policy, politics and agricultural science. Researchers working in development studies, development economics, human geography, rural sociology, agricultural economics and rural sociology will also find this book beneficial."@en ;
