Introduction: the new farmers' movements in India


Journal of Peasant Studies 21(3/4): 3-26
Introduction: the new farmers' movements in India
Contextualizing the new farmers' movements which emerged in India during the 1980s in terms of economic developments both at the national and the international level, the contributions to this volume are grouped around four themes: (1) the extent to which the farmers' mobilizations in India are part of a general global trend towards new social movements; (2) the historical background and future direction of the new farmers' movements in India; (3) their class composition and regional specificity; and (4) the kind of mobilizing ideology (anti-state, anti-urban, anti-capitalist) they use and the degree to which this discourse reinforces or negates other politico-ideological issues currently topical in India, in particular those associated with the BJP.
