The redistribution of land has profound implications for women and for gender relations; however, gender issues have been marginalised from both theoretical and policy discussions of agrarian reform. This book presents an overview of gender and agrarian reform experiences globally. Jacobs highlights case studies from Latin America, Asia, Africa and eastern Europe and also compares agrarian and land reforms organised along collective lines as well as along individual household lines. This volume will be of interest to scholars in Geography, Women’s Studies, and Economics.

Vorwort der Herausgeber Indem wir mehrfachen Nachfragen nach der bereits längst vergriffenen Schrift Sozialreform oder Revolution? Rechnung tragen, geben wir sie in zweiter Auflage heraus. Wir glauben damit namentlich dem neuerdings in den Parteikreisen merklich erwachten erfreulichen Interesse für theoretische Fragen entgegenzukommen, da die vorliegende Schrift eine Reihe prinzipieller und wissenschaftlicher Probleme von dauernder Bedeutung in leicht faßlicher und knapper Form behandelt. Mit Zustimmung der Verfasserin, die an der Schrift mehrere zeitgemäße kleinere Korrekturen vorgenommen hat, fügen wir der Streitschrift gegen Bernstein auch noch einige Aufsätze aus derselben Feder hinzu, die verwandte Fragen behandeln und sich deshalb u. E. zusammen zu einem Ganzen verbinden lassen. So findet der Leser in der vorliegenden Broschüre, von verschiedenen Seiten beleuchtet, das Lohngesetz, die Krise, die Frage der Gewerkschaften, Genossenschaften, der Sozialreform u. a.
