  • About the Edition

    Throughout the world, and throughout history, the family unit has been at the heart of agricultural systems. Working together, families not only furnish their own needs, but form the basis for society itself: they provide the labour, population, resources and the market to maintain much of the world"s economic and social development. But the global race for financial prosperity, with its large-scale intensive farming techniques, is increasingly undermining the family"s role in food production and social cohesion. In this book, David Francis examines the importance of family agricultural systems in both the developed and the developing worlds. He explores both traditional and modern farming techniques, and looks at their different consequences for national agricultural resources and for rural societies. Finally, he suggests ways in which technology can be harnessed to meet the needs of the family rather than undermine it, in order to achieve a viable and sustainable agriculture for the future.
