Summary
"As we realize the ways in which our food systems contribute and respond to climate change, sustainable agriculture becomes increasingly crucial. It is a complicated, multi-dimensional issue, which should be considered from a variety of angles. This compendium includes the perspectives of science, economics, sociology, and policy. The editor, an experienced researcher and author in this field, has organized the articles under the following headings: what is sustainable agriculture?; sustainably connecting producers and consumers; localizing the food system; organic food and the human element: consumers & farmers; the future of sustainable agriculture. Together, the contributors present an international and comprehensive perspective that examines the concept of sustainability as it applies to the food supply chain from farm to fork. They have created a valuable resource for soil and plant scientists, agronomists and environmental scientists, agricultural and natural resources engineers and economists, environmental policy makers, and conservationists, as well as graduate students and academic libraries."--
