THE first International Conference of Agricultural Economists was held ten years ago. As the period elapsing between meetings is now three years, some means of maintaining an interchange of ideas, beyond the issue of the proceedings, seemed desirable. The International Journal of Agrarian Affairs, the first number of which has just been published, is a bold attempt to meet this need. Two numbers will be brought out each year, the intention being to develop a series of studies on economic and social problems, one such problem being dealt with at a time. The Journal will therefore serve as a complement rather than an addition to the statistical year-books of agricultural information which are already available. The kind of topics which will form the subject-matter are those common to all countries, and the aim will be to emphasize the universal concern with the solution of such problems, and to discuss them from all possible angles.
