9780935028287: Promised Land: Competing Visions of Agrarian Reform

Agrarian reform is back at the center of the national and rural development debate, a debate of vital importance to the future of the Global South and genuine economic democracy. The World Bank as well as a number of national governments and local land owning elites have weighed in with a series of controversial policy changes. In response, peasants landless, and indigenous peoples’ organizations around the world have intensified their struggle to redistribute land from the underutilized holdings of a wealthy few to the productive hands of the many.
The essays in this volume, edited by scholars from the Land Research Action Network (LRAN), critically analyze a wide range of competing visions of land reform. Promised Land is an essential resource for academics, students, policy makers, activists, and peasant organizations.

Review:

“A pathbreaking volume that provides a compelling critique of the current market-led reforms promoted by the likes of the World Bank.... This is a state-of-the-art analysis coupled with a rich and sophisticated account of on-the-ground experiences and struggles. A tour de force.”
–Michael Watts, Class of ’63 Professor, and director of African Studies, University of California, Berkeley


“Written from the perspective of civil society actors themselves, [Promised Land] is a powerful argument for the need to develop food sovereignty, strengthen local communities, and build transnational connections in the fight against inequality, poverty, and rural violence.”
–Wendy Wolford, co-author of To Inherit the Earth: The Landless Movement and the Struggle for a New Brazil


“This book should be required reading for anyone who wants to understand and contribute to the contemporary struggle for agrarian reform around the world.”
–Rafael Alegría, coordinator, Global Campaign for Agrarian Reform, La Vía Campesina
