In recent years, developed countries have formulated public policies in agriculture ranging from supporting rural life and farm income to promoting sustainability of food and fibre production.

Public Policy in Agriculture: Impact on Labor Supply and Household Income addresses the lack of empirical research in this area. It explores the impact of differing approaches to public policy through a series of international case studies, from the USA and Canada to South Korea, Norway, Slovenia and Taiwan. At a time when much of the developed world has been experiencing budget deficits and policy-makers and the public in general have re-opened the debate on public expenditures in the agricultural sector, this is a timely volume.

Mishra, Viaggi and Gomez y Paloma have written an authoritative guide to agricultural public policy that will serve as a reference for academics, researchers, students, and policy-makers.

Ashok K. Mishra is Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation Chair in the Morrison School of Agribusiness at the WP Carey School of Business, Arizona State University, Tempe, USA. Davide Viaggi is Associate Professor at the Department of Agricultural Sciences of the University of Bologna, Italy.
