Agriculture has been a significant source of economic and political conflict between nations during the last twenty years. This timely volume focuses on the role and operation of agriculture in developed market economies. It opens with a set of papers dealing with the basic economic organization of farming and with the market setting in which it operates. A section on agricultural policy analysis is followed by material relating to policy studies in the national and international settings. An additional dimension is supplied by a short selection of material relevant to problems of agriculture in the Third World. The emphasis throughout is on the economic analysis of policy measures which affect agriculture worldwide, including the most recent important developments.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Altogether, the edition contains a well-chosen selection of key articles on "agricultural economic policy". . . For all scholars concerned with agricultural policy, the book can definitely be recommended as a standard work allowing quick access to important landmark and general publications.' -- Winfried Manig, Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture
`Collections such as this have two benefits. First, they make a group of articles accessible in one volume. This is an invaluable aid to educators, students and researchers alike. Second, they are of benefit to the economic historian, who can readily trace the development of a set of ideas and techniques. Overall, this book serves the purpose of being a reference source for students, researchers and lecturers in agricultural economics. To scientists from related disciplines who seek an introduction to agricultural economics, this volume offers a selection of its most important papers.' -- Christopher Weiss, European Review of Agricultural Economics
