Land and Freedom: The MST, the Zapatistas and Peasant Alternatives to Neoliberalism (Paperback)

£19.99
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

The Zapatistas of Chiapas and the Landless Rural Workers' Movement (MST) of Brazil are often celebrated as shining examples in the global struggle against neoliberalism. But what have these movements achieved for their members in more than two decades of resistance and can any of these achievements realistically contribute to the rise of a viable alternative?



Through a perfect balance of grassroots testimonies, participative observation and consideration of key debates in development studies, agrarian political economy, historical sociology and critical political economy, Land and Freedom compares, for the first time, the Zapatista and MST movements.



Casting a spotlight on their resistance to globalizing market forces, Vergara-Camus gets to the heart of how these movements organize themselves and how territorial control, politicization and empowerment of their membership and the decommodification of social relations are key to understanding their radical development potential.

Leandro Vergara-Camus teaches development studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. His work focuses on the Latin American left, peasant agriculture, the history of land struggles in Latin America, and the impact of the internationalization of the Brazilian sugar cane ethanol industry in the global South.
