The Agricultural Dilemma: How Not to Feed the World
Glenn Davis Stone (Author)
- provides a new analysis of population and agricultural growth.
- argues that we can’t make sense of population and food production without recognizing the drivers of three fundamentally different types of agriculture: Malthusian (expansion), industrialization (external-input-dependent) and intensification (labour-based).
- upends entrenched misconceptions such as that we are running out of land for food production and that our only hope is development of new agricultural technologies
- written in an engaging style, containing vignettes, short histories and global case studies
- will not only be of interest to students and scholars of agriculture, land management and development, but also those more widely interested in learning about agri-food systems and the challenges of feeding a growing population.
