Globalisation, Agriculture and Development

Globalisation, Agriculture and Development

Perspectives from the Asia-Pacific

Edited by Matthew Tonts and M. A.B. Siddique

This book explores the links between globalization, agriculture and development in a number of contemporary Asia-Pacific nations. 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.
