About this book

For more than two hundred years, Ethiopia's agricultural system was one of the most innovative and efficient in Africa, but it has been afflicted in the recent past by a series of crises: famine, declining productivity, and losses of biodiversity. McCann analyses the country's recent agricultural history to determine whether the ox-plow agricultural system has adapted to population growth, new crops, and challenges of a modern political economy based in urban centres.
