The social organisation of the peasantry: The economic basis of Kinship

The social organisation of the peasantry: The economic basis of Kinship This paper is mainly concerned with ‘traditional’ peasant organisation in West Africa. The first two parts deal with the social organisation of peasantries on two levels: that of the productive units and that of relations among these units. Finally, it deals more briefly with the transformation of the social organisation of agricultural production under the impact of market development and capitalism. A basic contention is that the social organisation of the peasantry is built around the relations of production as they grow from the economic constraints of agricultural activities and around the need for reproduction of the productive unit. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Peasant Studies Taylor & Francis
