About this item

In recent decades, rising land prices and ever-increasing demand for housing have made it incredibly difficult for farms to sustain themselves in Britain—with dangerous consequences for food supplies. Government attention to the issue has been limited at best, which has led to speculation and the loss of more and more farmland. WithWhose Land Is Our Land? Peter Hetherington mounts a powerful argument for a more active, forward-thinking policy, one that acknowledges the importance of farming, rural society, and food security and takes stronger action to curb speculation and rampant overbuilding.
