Much of what I wrote about in The Theft of the Countryside remains pertinent. I examined the reasons why modern farming was transforming the countryside and the subsidy machine which was fuelling not only damaging landscape change but also the over-production of food.

Introduction from The Theft of the Countryside by Marion Shoard - This book examines the impact of modern farming on the countryside.
