_____________________________________________________________
Importance of Rural Development

Extent of exploitation of the local population by the landlords was limited by
patron-client relationships.
II. Why Peasants Rebel
1. When rural modernization threatens the peasantry’s traditional way of life and
moral economy (Introduction of market forces, such as sugar and coffee, fighting
for their products b/c it is too risky to grow those goods)
2. When landowners abandon traditional protections for the peasantry in favour of
market competition.
3. When the peasantry’s access to land and livelihood are jeopardized.
(e.g landless wage labours, peasants without secure title to land)
III. Agrarian Reform Programs
Agrarian Reform- The expropriation and redistribution of private and/or public farmland
from large landowners to landless peasants or small holders.
