The main objectives of this study were the mapping, descriptionption and analysis of the contemporary pattern of African subsistence crop production in its physical and human setting. As with Caesar's Gaul, a tripartite division may render the geography in question more readily comprehensible to the observer. The first section may be viewed as extending to p.39; it contains a brief methodological discussion, a concise and logically ordered account of the physical and social environment within which the pattern of agriculture has evolved, and an assessment of the total areas cultivated and available for agricultural use.
