About the Authors
  • First published in 1933 as the second edition of a 1923 original, this book examines the many economic problems that can befall the agricultural industry, specifically that of the United Kingdom but with some reference to agricultural practices elsewhere in the world. Venn also includes a detailed study of the state of British agriculture immediately before and after WWI, as well as charts of agricultural output over time and detailed charts of acreage allotted to various crops in the UK. This book will be of interest to agricultural economists and historians.
