The Peasant Movements of Developing Countries in Asia and North Africa After the Second World war
It is impossible to discuss the dynamics of socio-economic and political change in the developing countries today without including a careful analysis of the history and progress of peasant movements. The peasantry constitutes, after all, the most numerous stratum of the population. It still provides the bulk of the labour force in developing economies, as it has for many centuries; and it is becoming an increasingly important element in the balance of political power in many cases as well. The prospects for economic and social progress in developing countries therefore depend to a considerable extent on the kinds of agrarian contradictions generated within each country and the nature of peasant movements growing out of those contradictions.
