Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Earthscan food and agriculture. Publisher: New York Routledge 2018Edition: 2nd.Description: xi, 311p. With index.ISBN: 9781138071315.Subject(s): Peasants | Agricultural systems | Rural development | Environmental sociology | Agriculture--economic aspects | GlobalizationDDC classification: 305.5633 Summary: When first published in 2008, The New Peasantries revolutionized our ways of thinking of what constitutes the peasantry and repeasantization. It showed how a new era of empire and globalization was creating new forms of peasantry. This new edition is thoroughly revised, with a reorganization of chapters and several new chapters added. It includes a new chapter on China, based on the author's extensive fieldwork there, and much more information on Brazil. It integrates and critically reviews the many publications on peasants, peasantries and peasant modes of agricultural production published in recent years. The theoretical discussion is enriched with more attention to the seminal work of Chayanov. Greater attention is also paid to the construction of new markets – a theme that will remain a major issue in the coming decade. It combines and integrates different bodies of literature: the rich traditions of peasant studies, development and rural sociology, neo-institutional economics and debates on empire and globalization. The original book has been used in several international postgraduate courses. The experience and feedback thus obtained has been used to simplify the structure of the book and make it more accessible as a textbook for students. https://www.routledge.com/The-New-Peasantries-Rural-Development-in-Times-of-Globalization-2nd-Edition/van-der-Ploeg/p/book/9781138071315
