Agricultural and Food Policy
Prentice Hall, 1990 - Business & Economics - 437 pages
"The fifth edition of Agricultural and Food Policy provides a timely and comprehensive treatment of current policy issues affecting the food and agriculture industry today. Although this new edition has been completely revised, it still adheres to the basic principles that made it a leader in its field. Recognizing that agricultural policy is broader than farm programs, this book still includes process, international, resource, and food policy components."--BOOK JACKET.
