Recenzii

'This book is a major contribution to our understanding of the complexities of global food supply chains. In particular it details the impact of market distortions caused by Government intervention. It is required reading for all food policy professionals and food producers at a time of increasing interest in global food security.' - Dr. Lawrie Dooley, Director, Centre for the Study of Rural Australia, Marcus Oldham College, Australia 'Issues affecting the international food supply chain are increasingly under discussion; from climate change and growing urbanization to expanding intellectual property rights and rising market concentrations. There is a need for a textbook with a holistic approach on competition and efficiency in the international food supply chain. Therefore I highly recommend the new book by John Williams.' - Bo Ohlmer, Professor in Economics at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Sweden 'Your book is the first and only ' text' book that I have ever been guilty of reading in my life and it has been a joy.' - Leon Bradley, Western Australian wheat grower
