Multifunctional agriculture: a transition theory perspective.

Book cover for Multifunctional agriculture: a transition theory perspective.

Description

Using a novel approach based on transition theory, this book establishes a link between multifunctionality and debates on the postulated transition towards 'post-productivism' in agriculture. It argues that multifunctionality can best be understood as a spectrum of decision-making bounded by productivist and non-productivist action and thought and this normative assessment of multifunctionality better encapsulates the current complexity of agricultural and rural change. This book is intended as a resource for decision-makers in contemporary agricultural and rural spaces, and for researchers and students in social sciences, agriculture and the rural sector. The book has 11 chapters and a subject index.
