Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


Small farmers in both developed and developing countries share certain basic goals.

It has become increasingly difficult to pursue these goals simultaneously. Farmers have been pulled by the increasing demands of the market and the state into a nexus of relationships that extend beyond the farm to the national and international level.
