Agriculture has always attracted attention from governments, policy makers and planners. As a globalized industry any policy that has agriculture at its core must also be globalized.

Its three main obejectives are: to outline a theoretical framework and approach for analysing developmnents in capitalist agriculture in advanced industrial economices; the explore policy and planning issues and problems emanating from agriculture at the end of the twentieth century; and to review policy and planning processes and practice appropriate to the new structural conditions facing agriculture.

'This is an extremely good and important book which will come to represent a major turning point in the way in which we view agriculture ... Le Heron's book marks a recognition that the political economy approach has to accept pluralism, free will,
