S. media, this volume examines small family farms in Mexico which have fared worse economically since NAFTAas passage. A distinguished group of contributors provide historical background, policy analysis, case studies, comparisons with large agribusiness corporations, and recommendations for ways to improve the situation of small farms in the future.
