About the Book :

The book addresses the 'new' character of global change in agriculture at both the conceptual and empirical levels. Through a collection of articles originally prepared for the international interdisciplinary conference "Globalization of the Agricultural and Food Sector", the book underscores changes in the production process, institutions and social actors. The first of the three sections in which the book is divided address the issue of the globalization process through analyses of specific cases and theoretical considerations of the implications that globalization has on various aspects of society. The second part discusses the issue of bilateralism, trade and ethics in the new agricultural global order. The third and final part deals with the issue of the role that institutions of higher education and extension can play in the new global system. In the introduction the editor reviews the major characteristics of the process of globalization and provides a general background for the reading of the contributions contained in the volume.
