Abstract. Boulanger and Messerlin argue that more interna¬tional trade is essential for an increase in the global resilience of agriculture and that better targeting of public and private policies is critical. On Karami and Keshavarz’s reading, sustainability, climate change, and replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy are relatively new challenges for agriculture. Wu and Sardo argue that an effective, long-term sustainability of agriculture must primarily gain farmers acceptance. Wilson analyzes the recent transition from agriculture as a producer of food and fibre to that of agriculture as a producer of multifunctional products and spaces. Casper affirms that new discoveries and farming techniques make agriculture more productive, efficient, and friendly to the environment. (pp. 179–183)
