About this book

This valuable contribution to development studies highlights the receptivity of peasant farmers to new crops and technology, but demonstrates that a policy "modernizing" peasant agriculture is insufficient to resolve the agrarian problem in a context of peasant land scarcity, low food prices, rural population growth, and insufficient off-farm employment.
