Editorial Reviews

This volume discusses issues of continuing relevance to the Agri-food Research Network as well as issues that have arisen recently. Nineteen contributions, originally presented at a December 1997 Conference, conceptualize a series of global trends and their ramifications as reflected in transformations at local and regional levels; interrogate Australian and New Zealand experiences of agri- food restructuring in historic, ideological and discursive terms; analyze local policy and politics; and study four key concepts underpinning agri-food research, their continued relevance, and the possibilities for their application in new areas.
