About this book

Investigates the emergence of the farm pollution problem in Britain and traces the resulting change in public opinion that has lead to a new `moralizing' of the countryside. Drawing on detailed fieldwork carried out amongst dairy farmers, pollution inspectors, agricultural advisors and environmentalists, the authors examine agriculture's shift from being one of the least to one of the most formally regulated sectors from the point of view of pollution control.
`This is more than just a study of the environmental impact of modern farming. It is a morality tale of our time. Anyone interested in the future of our countryside should read this book.' Howard Newby
