by B. L. Turner II,Stephen B. Brush

Through a series of 12 original case studies, prepared by 19 international, multidisciplinary experts, this volume offers a comprehensive comparative examination of world agriculture. The 12 farming systems explored here encompass the broad array of environmental, demographic, and socioeconomic conditions in which agriculture exists--from Amazonian swidden to Hungarian cooperative farms. B.L. Turner II and Stephen B. Brush have provided a three-part classification of the systems based on output intensity, technology employed, and production goals. The contributors bring to their case studies the perspectives of anthropology, economics, geography, and rural sociology. Farming Systems will be a valuable reference work on individual farming systems, a rich source of comparative data for researchers, and a text for advanced courses in farming systems and world agriculture.
