The book, Economic Problems of Agriculture in its 7th Edition has a minor change in its title as against the previous ones. In fact these minor changes in the title do not mean much – for so long as the primary objective remains the same. The present study is divided into Chapters instead of only in the 6th Edition. The idea is to have a wider coverage to enable the reader to have better knowledge of the new problems being faced by the students of agricultural economics in their every day problems. Drastic changes have take place since 2002, when the 6th Edition was published New book it is hoped will be as valuable as the previous issues.
