Author: Jean Davison


"A thoughtful and thought-provoking book based on case studies in ten coountries in all four regions of sub-Saharan Arica, Jean Divison's Agriculture, Women and Land makes a solid contribution to the study of rural development. It emphasizes the diversity and complexity of social relations shaping women's access to agricultural land and demonstrates women's active resistance to the exclusion from rights to land and crops they have produced."
