Overview

Tradition and Reform: Land Tenure and Rural Development in South-East Asia by Mark Cleary, Peter Eaton

The majority of the population of South-east Asia depends on the land for its living. Land is held in a multitude of different ways—through tribal custom, as individual owner-occupier units, through plantations. In many parts of the region landlessness is a major social and political issue. Using a wide range of case studies, this book examines the different landholding systems of the region and argues that a combination of traditional and reformed tenure systems offers the best prospects for improving the welfare of the rural population.
