About this book

The globalization of goods, services and capital for agriculture is fundamental to the future of developing countries and has major implications for the fight against poverty and sustainability of the environment. In recent years, agriculture has once again returned to a position of centre stage as food price volatility has led countries to re-examine their development strategies.

This book contains a wealth of real world case studies and is accompanied by a website that includes powerpoint lectures, a photo bank and a large set of discussion and exam questions.
