The intertwined relationship of agriculture with power is one of the issues that has not been properly addressed in political ecology and environmental insights. It should not be overlooked that very valuable studies have been done in this area of ​​knowledge and prominent articles have addressed the relationship between agriculture and power. However, so far a few written sources have been published on the theoretical foundations of political ecology and the intellectual origins of the discourses, operations and ideas in this field to discover and explain the conflicts in agriculture. Meanwhile, agroecology has paid more attention to the dimensions of power in agriculture than other agricultural sciences. In the present book, the author intends to show that the discussion of political issues of agroecology in the context of political ecology and post-development theory rather than the study of agroecology under the framework of sustainable development or rural development can lead to useful results.
