The authors of the book, together with many other colleagues, commemorate the 70th birthday of Csaba Csaki, the former Rector during transition, the internationally renowned professor, the advisor of the World Bank, the Member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the owner of the “Széchenyi Award” and the “Officer's Cross Order of Merit of the Republic of Hungary”, the Honorary Doctor of many institutions, the Professor of the Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Development of the Corvinus University of Budapest. And, not to miss the most important, the proud father and grandfather.
Nineteen scholars from all over the world have contributed to this volume in celebration of Csaba Csaki’s seventieth birthday. It is a small gift of appreciation and thanks from us, his colleagues, for the guidance, friendship and inspiration he has given us throughout our careers as professional agricultural economists. The book’s title, Changing Landscape of European Agriculture, reflects the main interest in Csaba’s work. The volume contains papers that were presented at the honorary conference held 4 November 2010, at the Corvinus University of Budapest. The participants were colleagues of Csaba Csaki during the past decades at the Corvinus University, World Bank, IIASA, and in various scientific projects. Moreover, the book contains two additional papers which were not presented at the conference due to technical reasons.
