In the recent past it has been observed that in many Asian Nations there is now a more rapid growth in economic prosperity than there has ever been in the so called developed nations. This results in major changes in agriculture and therefore agricultural extension also has to change. The present book Changing Role of Agricultural Extension in Asian Nations tries to help managers of agricultural extension organizations and extension scientists in Asian countries to decide which changes in the roles of agricultural extension organizations in their country are desirable and how these changes can be implemented. This implies learning from experience and that is the reason why various experts on the field have bedn invited from various Universities Research Institutes NGOs and other extension and donor organizations all over the world to contribute chapters for this book about the changes in the roles of agricultural extension in which they have been involved and are experienced. The editors and the contributors sincerely hope that this book will help the readers to adjust their agricultural extension system and approach to the changing situation in which they work by learning from experience in different Asian countries. Further it is also expected that the sharing experiences between nations may help to improve agricultural extension and in the process to decrease poverty among farm families because it helps them to realize the opportunities the change in their society offers them. 435 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 60307
