This book explores rural producers in Africa, Asia and Latin, and shows through case studies the pressures and opportunities that have caused many peasants to 'diversify' into a number of occupations and non-agricultural income-earning avenues. Political, social and economic factors of peasant livelihood are examined and how peasant labour redundancy can undermine rural welfare and political stability.
