The Agrarian Question and Reformism in Latin America epitomizes the emerging tradition of conflict-oriented approaches to problems of economic, agricultural, and rural development in Third World nations. Drawing on firsthand observations of the agrarian crises in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, and ten other Latin American nations, Alain de Janvry effectively blends Marxist theories of worldwide economic development with empirical analysis and policy recommendations.

The two basic problems addressed in this wide-ranging study are the stagnation of food production and the dynamics of rural poverty. The facts of the agrarian crisis in Latin America show that cheap semiproletarian labor on the vast export-oriented and mechanized landed estates of today leads to destruction of the peasantry. The process is accompanied by ecological collapse, demographic explosion, urban migration, and increasing landlessness... This volumeis tightly organized; the material is logically presented with a minimum of professional jargon. It deserves a careful reading. * Latin America in Books, January 1983 *
