Summary
This collection of material is made up of analyses and commentaries of other authors' works and covers most Western European countries, with emphasis on his four case studies: the UK, France, Germany and Denmark. French and German works were usually noted in their original language. The periods covered are mainly the latter part of the nineteenth century, the 1930's, and the post-war period up the early 1960's. For the second edition, sub-titled "Challenge and Response", he extended the historical coverage backwards as well as forwards, in particular giving more attention to the feudal origins of rural structures, some of the notes reflect this. The third edition, with the title "Government and Agriculture in Western Europe, 1880-1988, involved further up-dating of the subject matter. However, works on the CAP since the early 1960's are not included in this collection. They are referenced in the third edition and more recently in his book, "Food and Agriculture in the European Union and other Market Economies", (1993), both produced under his own publishing label, "Agricultural Policy Studies". His notes mainly cover the period from 1880 to the beginnings of the CAP. Michael Tracy collected them for his book "Agriculture in Western Europe - Crisis and Adaptation since 1880" (1964), later works taken into account in the 1982 edition "Agriculture in Western Europe - Challenge and Response" and in the 1989 version of his book, with the new title "Government and Agriculture in Western Europe 1880-1988", are not included in these notes
