Dr. Rahman shows how in Bangladesh old relations of production and exchange are changing, poor peasants are being dispossessed as the rich enlarge their landholdings, and proletarianization is making headway. Mass rural impoverishment and political unrest are the likely long-term consequences. An introduction by Dr. Terry Byres brings out the wider significance for peasant studies of Rahman's methodology and conclusions.
