Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803993048, Hardcover)The third in a major series examining land reforms in India, this volume focuses on Andhra Pradesh. Featuring original essays by scholars, activists, and administrators, Land Reforms in India, Volume 3 provides an in-depth understanding of the history, progress, and current status of the reforms in the state. Using both field-level primary data and secondary sources such as land records and judicial proceedings, the contributors focus on the impact of peasant struggles and agrarian movements in the state, the enactment of legislation and the implementation of land ceiling laws, the distribution of surplus land, tenancy reforms, and the status of landless laborers. Additionally, the role of state agencies in framing and implementing policies, the response of the judicial machinery, successful administrative efforts in tribal areas of Andhra Pradesh, the status of female agricultural laborers, and the role of activists and NGOs are covered. Concluding that land reforms have had a modest impact on altering the power structure in the rural areas of Andhra Pradesh, the contributors suggest a range of measures to redistribute surplus land to the poor and landless laborers. With its balanced and comprehensive coverage, providing both macro and micro perspectives, this book will be of considerable interest to those studying land reforms and agrarian change, the political economy of agriculture, sociology, rural development, and agricultural labor. It will also attract the attention of administrators, policy-makers, and activists.
