In this summary I give an overview of some of the published series in some way I've worked with and that I think they give a reasonable overview of contemporary rural sociological research.

The Rural Studies Series published by Van Gorcum in Assen and refers to changes in European agriculture.

Under the heading Articles I have a number of recent contributions to the agricultural policy debate.

Finally there is a chronological summery of my publications since 1973.
