`This book is an ambitious collection of 12 separate papers by different authors from Australia, New Zealand and China. . . The book is well-referenced throughout, with much new material. It is suitable for inclusion in University courses in agriculture, development studies and economic geography. Individual chapters provide up-to-date reference material for any reader interested in recent developments in agriculture for a particular country or region.' -- Mike Daw, Experimental Agriculture
`This volume is both opportune and important. The issue of the links between globalization, agriculture and development need urgently to be emphasised in a world economy transfixed by issues of energy, industry and finance, the problems of the triad states, and the rise of the BRICs. The chapters in this volume begin this task through studies of agricultural change in Asia-Pacific countries, including Australia, New Zealand, the ASEAN nations, India and China. They show the uneven impacts of liberalization, contracting, and modernization that bring social change in their wake.' -- Mike Taylor, University of Birmingham, UK
