Brookfield has emphasized the extremes of agriculturally managed landscapes in the small-farming regions of developing countries... [T]he volume is an excellent resource for scholars and policymakers, as well as a major contribution to the field of agrodiversity.
[T]his is an interesting book and would be a worthwhile addition to any personal or academic library just for a range of case studies alone.... There is a fascinating range of examples of variations on the themes of human adaptability and landscape change.
A valuable contribution...provides many interesting examples that question well established and widely disseminated hypotheses.
Harold Brookfield has written a book well worth the read... Few scholars are as well positioned as Brookfield to write about dynamic diversity in traditional agricultural systems centered on the farmer and the farm.
