Item description for Achieving Sustainable Communities in a Global Economy: Alternative Private Strategies and Public Policies by Ralph D. Christy...
This important book explores alternative strategies in agricultural and rural development to address the impacts of globalization processes on smallholder agriculturalists and marginalized rural people. Its goal is twofold: to identify and assess the key processes by which globalization is affecting the smallholder agricultural and rural sectors; and to identify and propose both micro- and macro-level policies and other strategies to deal with the problems that arise. This volume presents writings of leading scholars and practitioners working in the private and public sectors. Their work focuses on major crosscutting issues in the developing world and on country-specific case studies.
