The Agriculture of Wales and Monmouthshire



IT was a very happy arrangement that Principal Ifor Evans and Prof. A. W. Ashby should combine to prepare a book on the agriculture of Wales. They have confined themselves mainly to the period for which official statistics are available, namely, from 1867 to the present time, and Prof. Ashby's wide knowledge of this branch of the subject has enabled him to avoid the pitfalls into which a less expert writer might have fallen. Ifor Evans knows the human side, and has been able to add the descriptive detail that puts life into the official figures.
