About this book

Covering more than the conventional 'food-only' role of the agriculture, the international contributors to "Agriculture, Human Security, and Global Peace" detail how the solution to agricultural problems can lead to the general socioeconomic and political development of impoverished countries. In the end, a stable agricultural policy raises the standards of health and hope for the population.
