Peasants & Politics: new free articles from the Journal of Peasant Studies

JPS coverA new Journal of Peasant Studies special issue focusing on Peasants & Politics is out now, part of the JPS's series celebrating its 40th anniversary.

This new collection highlights some of the key articles that have been published in the journal over the past four decades on peasant politics. The articles are free to access from the JPS website until 31 December 2014.

From the website:
"The articles share one common feature: they all remain extremely relevant, especially in the context of today's massive, worldwide revival of critical agrarian studies. We hope academics will find the virtual special issue useful in their courses. We hope students of contemporary critical agrarian studies and critical environmental studies, among others, will find it useful in building their theoretical foundations. We hope policy practitioners will find it relevant in informing policy debates. We hope agrarian, food and environmental activists will find it relevant in their political struggles."
