About the Authors
  • Sir William Cecil Dampier-Whetham (1867–1952) was a British scientist and agriculturalist who was knighted in 1931 for services to agriculture. In this book, which was first published in 1927, Dampier-Whetham provides a discussion of agricultural policy and how it is created. The text also gives a critical account of the many proposals made for rural reconstruction and development around the time of publication. It is divided into three main parts: 'British Agriculture'; 'The Land and its Owners'; and 'The Future of Rural England'. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in British rural history, agricultural development and economic history.
