Organic Farming Dynamics

Organic Farming Dynamics

Effects of Context and Appropriations


A. Cardona, F. Chrétien, B. Leroux, F. Ripoll, D. Thivet

Edition 2014
Anchored in different social science disciplines (anthropology, sociology, geography, education sciences), this work analyses the numerous forms of alternative agriculture to the so-called conventional model. Split into three sections (construction dynamics of currents and organisations, farmer trajectories and relations woven with non-farmers), it studies the influence factors that explain the practices observed and questions not only the complex relationship maintained by these alternatives with "their" configurations but also the methodological dimensions specific to the disciplinary approaches.

Agriculture Adopted by the Baka Pygmies in Cameroon

Social Dynamic and Structural Continuity


C. Leclerc

This book describes and analyses how the Baka Pygmies changed in Cameroon at the turn of the 1960s with the adoption of agriculture and permanent dwellings. Their move from a hunting and gathering economy to an economy that includes agriculture is an ideal framework for more general reflection on the social dynamics, changes in societies and sustainable development.
