The subject matter of agricultural economics has both broadened and deepened and the chapters of this handbook present innovative work in the field. This two volume set contains sections on "agriculture, natural resources and the environment", "agriculture in the macroeconomy" and "agriculture and food policy". Although agricultural economists have always paid attention to these topics, research devoted to them has increased substantially in scope as well as depth in recent years.
