In this book the study of rural geography will be limited to three exempl;ar types of agricultural system: shifting cultivation, intensive peasant farming, and extensive commercial farming.  I examine the social, economic and spatial changes that are taking place in these systems, and their implications. Rural geography is a broad subject which includes a variety of components. The subject generally includes the study of rural life in relation to agricultural production in varying physical, economic and social environments. This book contains a Question section to test understanding of the topics and some Exam Style Questions.
