A Survey of Agricultural Economics Literature, Volume 1
A Survey of Agricultural Economics Literature, Volume 1: Traditional Fields of Agricultural Economics, 1940s to 1970s was first published in 1977. This is the first volume of a comprehensive three-volume work providing surveys of the literature in agricultural economics which has been published since the 1940s. This first volume contains reviews of the significant literature in seven broad subject areas generally regarded as the traditional fields of agricultural economics. The surveys were prepared by ten leading agricultural economists: Harald R. Jensen, Ben C. French, George E. Brandow, D. Gale Johnson, William G. Tomek, Kenneth L. Robinson, John R. Brake, Emanuel Melichar, Willis Peterson, and Yujiro Hayami. The subjects covered are farm management and production economics, productive efficiency in agricultural marketing, policy for commercial agriculture, postwar policies relating to trade in agricultural products, agricultural price analysis and outlooks, agricultural finance and capital markets, and technical change in agriculture. The book will have wide use for reference, review, or study. Undergraduate and graduate students in agricultural economics, especially those concentrating on the particular fields covered in this volume, will find the material valuable in their studies. The volume will be useful also to agricultural economists wishing to refresh or update their knowledge in a specialty, to general economists wanting to learn about particular fields related to agriculture, and to other social scientists seeking information about one or more of the specialized areas of agricultural economics. Published by the University of Minnesota Press for the American Agricultural Economics Association.
