Retail price: EUR 129,00 Volume editorial board: Erik Thoen (Ghent University, Belgium) & Tim Soens (University of Antwerp, Belgium) in association with: Paul Brassley (University of Exeter, UK), Fulgence Delleaux (Université de Namur, Belgium), Michael Kopsidis (IAMO, Halle, Saale, Germany), Per Grau Møller (University of Southern Denmark, Denmark), Janken Myrdal (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Sweden), Alexandra Sapoznik (King's College, London, UK), Yves Segers (University of Leuven, Belgium) Agriculture is always a struggle with the environment since agricultural production is in fact applied ecology. However, in the past this struggle with environment was to a large extent determined by social organisation, which was regionally very diverse. Th e aim of this volume is to fi nd out how, when and within which structural boundaries, land was made useful for agriculture. In the fi rst part of each chapter, this is studied in general, focusing on the evolution of land use: how and why was land reclaimed and by whom? How intensively was this land used? Which actors played a part in this process? What were the environmental and social limits? In the second part production techniques and production systems are scrutinized: crop choices, crop rotations, the importance of fallow and cattle, crop yields etc. All this is examined in light of diff erent farming strategies and social conditions. Th e comparative approach of this volume in the Rural Economy and Society Series also enables a new and innovating perspective on the occurrence and impact of 'agricultural' and 'green' revolutions in the past.
