Synopsis: Agrarian reform is back at the center of the national and rural development debate, a debate of vital importance to the future of the Global South and genuine economic democracy. The World Bank as well as a number of national governments and local land owning elites have weighed in with a series of controversial policy changes. In response, peasants landless, and indigenous peoples’ organizations around the world have intensified their struggle to redistribute land from the underutilized holdings of a wealthy few to the productive hands of the many.
The essays in this volume, edited by scholars from the Land Research Action Network (LRAN), critically analyze a wide range of competing visions of land reform. Promised Land is an essential resource for academics, students, policy makers, activists, and peasant organizations.

About the Author: Peter M. Rosset is a researcher at the Center for the Study of Rural Change in Mexico (CECCAM) where he is co-coordinator of the Land Research Action Network. He is also an associate of the Center for the Study of the Americas (CENSA), and visiting scholar at the University of California, both in Berkeley. He is the former executive director and co-director of the Institute for Food and Development Policy (Food First) in Oakland, California. Peter is author of Food Is Different: Why we must get the WTO out of Agriculture.
Raj Patel is a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Civil Society at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa, and is author of Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World’s Food System (Portobello Books and HarperCollins, 2007).
Michael Courville is an independent writer and researcher in political economy. His work explores the limits of national development and the impact of those limits on resource distribution and human well being. He holds both an MA in International and Area Studies and a master’s in Social Welfare from the University of California at Berkeley.
