About this book

A new textbook, demonstrating how much traditional agricultural college education is changing.

From the publisher's announcement:

For all those who work, live in or simply enjoy the countryside, this new textbook is the essential reference guide. Developed to complement Primrose McConnell's Agricultural Notebook (now in its 20th Edition under the Editorship of Richard Soffe) The Countryside Notebook explores contemporary issues such as Social Capital and Rural Sociology, alongside the more traditional areas of Game, Aquaculture and Equine, offering the reader:

- Useful lists of further reading, references and websites at the end of each chapter
- Contributions from a wide range of experts
- International scope with content relevant to temperate climates outside the UK
- Additional support through a companion website

The book is divided into four accessible sections: Rural Development, Rural Society and Government, Rural Environment and The Rural Economy. Carefully developed to meet the needs of anyone studying courses in agricultural sciences, countryside management, rural studies, rural environment and countryside environment. Students, lecturers, managers and consultants in these areas will find this book a valuable purchase. All libraries in universities and colleges where these subjects are studied and taught will find it a welcome addition to their shelves.
