What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Land, Poverty and Livelihoods is very well-cited and grounded in concrete figures (the perfect source for a graduate student reading list). The introduction is incredibly thorough and didactic, carefully reviewing land reform in theory and practice around the world and over time. And the concluding chapter is an excellent analysis of the implications that the case studies presented in the book have for policy. Altogether, this book is an important source for the contemporary debate over whether and how agrarian reform might work to reduce rural poverty and inequality."

Wendy Wolford, UNC Chapel Hill
