Agricultural Policy in Western Europe
International Library of Comparative Public Policy No. 14
Agricultural politics and policy retain a central place in the politics of advanced industrial societies. Governments in most countries continue to subsidise agricultural production and regulate markets for farm commodities. The growth of concern about the environmental impact of agriculture has added a new dimension to the sector's politics. Tensions between the US and the EU over the protection of agriculture remain a major feature. New Zealand offers an interesting example of an experiment with deregulated and liberalised agriculture, while Japanese agriculture continues to be highly protected. All these topics are covered in this two volume set, which brings together the best writing on the subject from leading agricultural economists, political scientists and rural sociologists from across the world.

'This large collection of forty-eight articles is extremely useful for specialists in agricultural policy and showcases the strengths in this literature. It provides convenient access to a wealth of information on agricultural policy and the factors driving its development, particularly within Europe... The strength of this collection is its disciplinary breadth. The editors have selected articles from economics, sociology, public administration, political science, and public policy journals.' -- Elizabeth Moore, Canadian Public Administration
