The Routledge Handbook of Gender and Agriculture covers major theoretical issues as well as critical empirical shifts in gender and agriculture.
Gender relations in agriculture are shifting in most regions of the world with changes in the structure of agriculture, the organization of production, international restructuring of value chains, climate change, and national and multinational policy changes. This book provides a cutting-edge assessment of the field of gender and agriculture, with contributions from both leading scholars and up and coming academics as well as policymakers and practitioners.
The handbook is organised into four parts: Part 1, Institutions, Markets, and Policies, Part 2, Land, Labor, and Agrarian Transformations, Part 3, Knowledge, Methods, and Access to Information, and Part 4. Farming People and Identities. Chapters address both historical subjects as well as ground-breaking work on gender and agriculture which will help to chart the future of the field. The handbook has an international focus with contributions examining issues at both the global and local level with contributors from across the world.
With contributions from leading academics, policymakers and practitioners, and with a global outlook, the Routledge Handbook of Gender and Agriculture is an essential reference volume for both scholars, students and practitioners interested in gender and agriculture.
