Om boka

Originally published in 1927, this book provides an analysis 'of the economic position of the small cultivator, particularly in contrast with that of the wage-labourer' based on a survey of small-scale farming in the Carmarthenshire area. At the time of publication numerous works had been written on the economics of large and small holdings, but most of these texts were lacking in comprehensive data. The aim of this study was collect in one place extensive and reliable data on the lives of smallholders, thereby giving an insight into their true economic position. A bibliography is included and notes are incorporated throughout. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in smallholdings, British agriculture and the history of economics.
