Agrarian Stratification-Old Issues, New Explanations and New Issues, Old Explanations

Agrarian Stratification Old Issues, New Explanations and New Issues, Old Explanations K L Sharma The differentiation of peasantry and the mode of production are old issues. Therefore to find out entirely new explanations for them would be to ignore the traditional structure and process of change affecting that structure. The new issues are land reforms, green revolution, adult franchise, and some other such structural innovations, but the explanations to understand them are mainly traditional ones: caste, family background, regional affinity and language have always played a crucial role in the traditionalisation of these post-Independence devices, This paper is published in two parts. The second part will appear next week.
