Description: Employing nearly half the world's workforce, agriculture is the single most important global industry. David Grigg provides a comprehensive introduction to agriculture in both the First and Third Worlds, describing both human and environmental issues. Covering the physical environment, economic behavior and demands, institutional, social and cultural influences, and the impact of farming upon the environment, the book explores the wide range of factors which influence how agriculture and agricultural practice differ from place to place. For this edition, the text, statistics, artwork and bibliography have been entirely updated and revised. In addition, two chapters on modernization and on the environment have been added.
