“Aims to broaden the discussion by focusing on international political policy and theoretical debates, as well as on some empirical cases from different countries that are relevant to the study of agrarian issues in the Philippines. . . . A key role in unmasking [market-led agrarian reform] was played by a new generation of land reform experts, among them Jun Borras, the author of this volume. . . . This book is a distillation of years of valuable intellectual and activist engagement from which both the specialist and the general reader will profit greatly.”— From the Foreword by Walden Bello.
This book has a second volume: Competing Views and Strategies on Agrarian Reform, Volume 2: Philippine Perspective, also by Ateneo de Manila University Press.
