Jan Douwe van derMorePeasants and the Art of Farming: A Chayanovian Manifesto focuses on the structure and dynamics of peasant farms and the historically highly variable relations that govern the processes of labour and production within peasant farms.

Jan Douwe van der Ploeg argues that peasant agriculture can play an important, if not central, role in augmenting food production and creating sustainability. However, peasants today, as in the past, are materially neglected. By building on the pioneering work of Chayanov, this book seeks to address this neglect and to show how important peasants are in the ongoing struggles for food, food sustainability and food sovereignty.Timely presentation of Chayanov’s theory of agriculture elaborating further balances of labour, consumption, drudgery and utility at the roots of peasant strategies of survival.Returning issues of choice into the centre of human knowledge about humans.Teodor Shanin, Moscow School of Social and Economic SciencesThe author’s grasp of theory, history, the empirical literature on peasants, and his own place-based research would all be remarkable in themselves- taken together, I marvel at the scope of his knowledge.

The author’s deep connection to farming in so many places, in both industrialized and developing countries, gives particular force to the power of his argumentation.Tony Weis, University of Western Ontario
