"The New Peasantries has a wide readership, ranging from scholars and students, to practitioners and officials. By solid examination of the essence of peasants and peasant farming, the author successfully affirms that a world with peasants is definitely a better place than one without them." - Jingzhong Ye, Professor and Dean of the College of Humanities and Development Studies, China Agricultural University, China

"Van der Ploeg's new edition of The New Peasantries is a fascinating analysis and a must read for those who want to understand the persistence, meanings and contributions of peasant agriculture in modern times. With detailed empirical research, Van der Ploeg tackles those who argue that peasants no longer exist, or if they do, they must surely be on their way to extinction. Instead, The New Peasantries, engagingly documents the complexities of repeasantization, that include, among other things, a whole lot of hard work, imagination, innovation and resistance." - Annette Aurelie Desmarais, Canada Research Chair in Human Rights, Social Justice and food Sovereignty, University of Manitoba, Canada

"The New Peasantries is a must read for all academics, activists and development practitioners who are keen to see reinvigorated political struggles against social injustice and for enduring alternatives, not just in and for agrarian societies but for the world in general." - Saturnino M. Borras Jr., Professor of Agrarian Studies, International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), the Netherlands

Praise for the first edition

"Jan Douwe van der Ploeg combines long engagement in the empirical study of farming and farmers, and of alternative agricultures, in very different parts of the world, with a sophisticated analytical acumen and capacity to provoke in fruitful ways." - Henry Bernstein, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, UK

"This book makes a timely and original contribution. The author revitalizes our interest in peasant societies through an in-depth examination of how rural populations in state systems respond to neo-liberal globalization." - Robert E. Rhoades, Distinguished Research Professor, University of Georgia, US

"There is an increasing interest in this topic, especially as the author links the debate on the peasantry with Empire and Globalization. He has an excellent reputation in the field and is highly qualified to write this book, which draws on his extensive worldwide experience with the issues he discusses." - Cristobal Kay, International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), the Netherlands

"This is a courageous book offering hope from the past for the future." - Professor John Hodges, AGRI
