Book Description

This collection of studies on the politics of agricultural development in key countries and regions of Asia and Africa focuses on the political forces that have shaped the development of new agricultural patterns and have modernized rural areas. The studies substantiate the assertion that political rather than technical factors hold the key to improved agriculture and economic development, and emphasize the need for steady and significant increases in food production in the developing countries themselves.
