Book Launch: "Agricultural Knowledge and Knowledge Systems in Post-Soviet Societies"

Hornidge, A.-K., Shtaltovna, A. and C. Schetter (editors) (2015) 'Agricultural Knowledge and Knowledge Systems in Post-Soviet Societies', Peter Lang. 

The volume addresses the crucial role of knowledge and innovation  in coping with and adapting to socio-economic and political transformation processes in post-Soviet societies. Unique are the bottom-up or micro-sociological and ethnographic perspectives offered by the book on  the  processes  of  post-Soviet  transformations  in  Central  Asia  and the  Southern  Caucasus.  Three  thematic  fields  form  the  structuring frame: cultures of knowledge production and sharing in agriculture; local governance arrangements and knowledge production; and  finally the present situation of agricultural advisory services development.
