Papers from an April 1998 conference held in Taipei, Taiwan, analyze the forces affecting the demand for, and supply of, staple foods in both developed and developing Asian countries. Particular attention is paid to the effects of rice production strategies and trade policies on food security. Papers discuss the implications of trade liberalization in the ASEAN free trade area and in East Asia on agricultural trade and food security, and examine the implications of China's ongoing economic transition on its agricultural trade and its policy on self-sufficiency. Of interest to scholars of Asian studies, agricultural economics, and international economics. Chern is affiliated with the Department of Agricultural, Environmental and Development Economics at the Ohio State University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
