Description

Integrated Development of Agriculture and Rural Areas in Central European Countries presents the exciting results of original research on the integrated development of agriculture and rural areas in the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland. This edited collection includes academics from both Western and Central European Countries who worked together on a three-year research project. The project yielded unique data that covers different aspects of rural development-both agriculture and non-agricultural activities-and is of special relevance owing to these countries' status as new members of the European Union. Following an introduction into the transition process and the current situations in each country, variations in farm performance are analyzed, a detailed look is taken at the rural development in the EU, the role of non-agricultural farm diversification is analyzed, and the major findings of the research are presented. This exceptional collection compiled by Davidova, Bauer, and Cuddy, will appeal to scholars of agriculture and rural economics and policy.show more
