Redistributing land in the Philippines: social movements and state reformers

Abstract

This chapter examines the national citizens’ campaign for land reform in the Philippines. In a society such as the Philippines today, where land still connotes wealth and power concentrated in the hands of the few, land reform holds a great deal of political significance and generates intense political conflict. Progress in land reform and distribution is discussed.

Owing to copyright restrictions, only the first 3 pages are attached, together with a link to the book at Zed Books.
