Written for those involved in the markets who have always found that there was never one central source on which to on for a comprehensive treatment of the international rice market. It brings together information from a wide variety of international sources, and includes discussion of the various elusive companies peripheral to the market, such as grain and freight companies. This is essential reading for all involved with international affairs in general and for governments and other agencies concerned with vital international food distribution questions as well as economists and those directly involved in the trade.
