This book comprises a fascinating discussion of the future of agriculture as conceived at the start of the twentieth century. It explores the advantages which civilised societies could derive from a combination of industrial pursuits with intensive agriculture, and 'brain work' with manual work. This is a book that is sure to appeal to those with a keen interest in the history of agriculture, and is a text not to be missed by the discerning collector of antiquarian farming literature. The chapters of this book include: 'The Decentralisation of Industries', 'The Possibilities of Agriculture', 'Small Industries and Industrial Villages', 'Brain Work and Manual Work', and more. Many old works such as this are becoming increasingly costly and rare, and it is with this in mind that we are proud to republish this text here - for both the study and enjoyment of those interested.
