Examines the move towards organic agriculture as an example of social change which can best be understood as the result of three factors: nature, social structure and human agency. The study extends beyond pre-ecological understandings of social change and attempts to incorporate peoples’ relationships with the natural environment as a factor influencing shifts in the patterns of daily life. The focus of the discussion is on understanding the forces which have produced the concern for agricultural sustainability in Canada and Sweden.
