International Bibliography of Agricultural Economics


    THE International Institute of Agriculture at Rome has just issued the first number of a new quarterly publication—the International Bibliography of Agricultural Economics—compiled under the technical direction of the librarian, Dr. S. von Frauendorfer. The need for a bibliography of this nature was realized in 1932, and since 1933 twelve publications on these lines have appeared in the journal Berichte über Landwirtschaft (Parey, Berlin). The thirteenth issue, giving the literature up to June 1, 1938, will be found in tho Berichte as usual, but subsequent publications are given in the new volume. The International Bibliography of Agricultural Economics covers the economic and social aspects of agriculture, such as agricultural economics, agricultural policy, settlement, credit, co-operation, insurance, marketing, prices, statistics, farm organization and management, valuation, labour, accounting, rural sociology, agricultural history and geography, legislation and education and all other agricultural problems, in so far as they aro considered from the economic and social point of view. Only publications of purely technical character are excluded. Titles of all publications, whether books, bulletins, pamphlets or articles in periodicals, are indicated, including all bibliographical details required for proper identification. All languages receive equal treatment, and titles in the less known languages are provided with a translation. The bibliography, which is the only one covering systematically the world literature on agricultural economics, is carefully classified by subjects. An author index will be supplied at the end of each volume. The annual subscription, postage included, is 6s. 6d.
