This is a book that is sure to appeal to those with a keen interest in the history of agriculture, and is a text not to be missed by the discerning collector of vintage farming literature. Chapters include: 'The Decentralisation of Industries', 'The Possibilities of Agriculture', 'Small Industries and Industrial Villages', 'Brain Work and Manual Work', and more.
