'This is a thought-provoking book worthy of the attention of all professionals working with issues of agricultural development in developing countries.' - Pierre Crosson, Resources for the Future, US 'For the development researcher or practitioner the main new insights afforded by this book are likely to be the two main chapters on the history of agricultural change in the now industrialised countries, since this may be unfamiliar territory to such readers.' - Frank Ellis, the Economic Journal This important book challenges conventional development theory by addressing not only technological but also socio-economic factors influencing low agricultural productivity in the developing world.
