Originally published in 1971, this book is a systematic study of the major features and factors of the location and distribution of global agricultural enterprises. Special emphasis is given to approaches to the subject developed by economists and economic geographers, but all aspects of agricultural geography are reviewed including physical environmental problems. An introduction to the problem of classification and data collection together with instruction in some simple analytical techniques is given to equip the student with the basic methods for their own research.

‘The discussion of this subject and the guidance which emerges is of basic importance to any student entering this field. And indeed the same can be said of the whole book…’ The Times Educational Supplement.
