The Development and Planning Department of the Government of West Bengal held an international conference in Kolkata in 2002, which provided a forum for debate and discussion on new research in the field of agrarian relations in less-developed countries. The papers brought together in this volume were first presented at this conference, and cover a wide range of theoretical issues and empirical experiences. Some address land reform, and others focus on liberalized trade and mobile financial flows. Country case studies concerned with changes in agrarian relations include Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Cuba, China, and Bangladesh; others on South Africa, the Philippines, and sub-Saharan Africa identify land reforms in the contemporary period.
