Product Description

1. Land Reform – Philippines – Negros Island 2. Land reform. Stories of Struggle is a meticulously researched and powerful account of the lived experiences of land tillers, their families, communities, and support organizations in the fight for land reform in Negros Occidental, Philippines.
Combining acute historical and political analysis with case study data, the book demonstrates that land reform is an ongoing matter of conflict and inequality, produced at the nexus of the legacy of the hacienda system imposed under Spanish colonial rule and the governmental turn toward neoliberal market approaches.
Alongside the hardships recounted in this book is a strong message of hope for people-centred land reform, illustrated through the inspiring work of the Paghida-et sa Kauswagan Development Group (PDG) group in supporting farming communities.
