China's Livestock and Related Agriculture : Projections to 2025 - 1st ed. - UK: CABI International; 1994. - 496 p. ;

The unprecedented changes which took place in China during the 1980s lead to rapid growth in gross national product and in per capita income. This resulted in expanded demand for both quantity and quality of livestock products. The key question addressed in this book is: Can China feed its growing population over the next 35 years or will massive feedstuffs imports be required? The book presents a detailed analysis of China's current livestock industry and of related crop production that supports this, and then makes projections to the years 2000, 2010 and 2025. The projections are developed within an economic framework which gives full recognition of political processes and the role of policy making. The book makes a unique contribution to the literature and is aimed at academics and policy makers concerned with animal production, agricultural economics and Chinese studies.
