Agriculture at AUB: A Century of Progress
In this informative book, Dean Daghir presents a well-documented history of agricultural education at AUB from the early part of the twentieth century to the current day. This account is preceded by an introductory chapter on the history of agriculture in the Levant, widely considered to be one of the areas where human beings first transformed from hunter-gatherers to farmers. This book is a rich testimony to the contributions of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences (FAFS) and its graduates toward development in the Middle East region. The book will be of interest not only to former and current FAFS students, faculty, and staff members, but also to all those interested in AUB and its growth over the years.
