African Smallholders: Food Crops, Markets and Policy


African Smallholders: Food Crops, Markets and Policy Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on highly topical international research in a high-priority area, this book documents the farm-level effects of the reorientation of agricultural policies with different themes for the different countries such as micro-credit, infrastructure, cash crop production and food security. It discusses staple food production in sub-Saharan Africa and its response to changing geo-political, macro-economic and agricultural policy, to deepen our understanding of how agricultural development unfolds at farm level. It is a useful resource for all those researching or involved with food security, agricultural development and African food planning.

Book News Annotation:

Djurfeldt (sociology, Lund U., Sweden), Aryeetey (The Brookings Insntitution, US), and Isinika (Sokoine U. of Agriculture, Tanzania) present a sequel to 2005's The African Food Crisis: Lessons from the Asian Green Revolution. They and their contributors repeat a cross-sectional survey of smallholders in 100 villages in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia and analyze the results in order to draw out village- and household-level effects of changes in agricultural policies and other macro-level processes, particularly in light of a shift in the policy climate away from the nostrums of neoliberalism towards a greater emphasis on food self-sufficiency. Distributed in the US by Stylus Publishing. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
