About this eBook

Preface Extension Education is certainly one of the most rapidly advancing of the agricultural sciences, and probably no other field has stimulated so many diverse disciplines. The fact that Extension Education has attracted scientists from different spheres such as agriculture, animal husbandry, psychology, nutrition Health, Journalism, Rural Management, forestry, nuclear and other scientists of diverse backgrounds to contribute to its development is one of the chief reasons for its prodigious growth.

While in the process of writing and compilation, we have carefully considered the criticisms of this work which have come under our notice, and have adopted all those all those suggestions which could be taken up, so far as they did not contradict the plan on which this volume was drawn. Some critics were mutually destructive, others were due to insufficient knowledge on the part of the critic, whilst others

advocated radical changes, which would have made this, not our book, but some other person s product. We have tried to furnish the terms in use in various periods, so that a paper or book of any period can be read, and its special expression understood to cut down the volume would have been therefore unwise, and the attempt would have failed to gain the approval of competent judges, as no two
