9780810857025: The Study of Agricultural Geography: A Scholarly Guide and Bibliography

Agricultural geography is defined as the study of the geographical and locational attributes, patterns, and processes of crop and animal farming, and related subjects such as farm land, farm-associated human geographers, environmental issues, and theoretical works on the location of agricultural activities.

The study of agricultural geography has produced a large amount of literature. This volume records and presents, in an organized manner, as much as possible of this literature. The entries of this compendium are written in a wide array of languages, including English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Russian and others in order to provide the widest coverage possible. The entries include atlases, books, book chapters, scholarly articles from professional journals, conference proceedings, doctoral dissertations, and master's theses. Over 12,000 entries have been recorded here, with the hope that such references will encourage and support the work of students, faculty, and other users.

About the Author:

Thomas Rumney is a professor of geography at Plattsburgh State University.

Review:

The reference work is a perfect place to begin an exploration of any problem related to a pattern in agriculture regardless of whether the pattern has a historic, social, political, climatologic, or other explanation....The table of contents gives an excellent overview of scope and is a good place to begin. (Arba)

...valuable... (Reference Reviews)

In this compilation of sources in agricultural geography, Rumney (geography, SUNY-Plattsburgh) provides a list of literature on geographical and locational attributes, crops and cropping patterns, animal husbandry, dairying, farm land, and agricultural populations, and conservation, social, and environmental issues, which are sorted geographically and by topic, then chronological order. The sources span the US and Canada, Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australasia-Oceania, and include specific states and countries within continents. The atlases, books, articles, theses, and dissertations are in several languages. (Scitech Book News)

Thomas Rumney has produced an impressively complete bibliography of world agricultural geography, a task that would appear not to have been done before, and one that will undoubtedly prove useful to students and scholars for many years to come.... An important addition for libraries and reference collections across the social sciences.... Any scholar browsing through its pages is sure to come across many items germane to his or her research.... This book will certainly be of use to students, giving them an idea of the range and diversity of geographic study as it relates to agriculture and offering a focused set of sources on, say, animal husbandry in California, or cropping patterns in Bulgaria, or irrigation in Pakistan. It will serve equally well as a starting point for further research or as a backstop for the more experienced scholar. (Journal Of Agricultural And Environmental Ethics)
