Agricultural policy and the development of a small holding stratum in Jamaica 1930-1980

Dissertation Abstracts International A, Humanities and Social Sciences 49(8): p.2418
Agricultural policy and the development of a small holding stratum in Jamaica 1930-1980
The existence of a smallholding stratum, neither peasant nor proletarian, remains a persistent feature of capitalist development in the Jamaican agricultural sector. While possession of land guarantees smallholders the right over the production of their subsistence requirements, it is inadequate as a means to an independent existence. smallholders are therefore forced to seek alternative sources of revenue to support their households through the sale of their labour power.
