Landholding and Commercial Agriculture in the Middle East: Globalization, Revolution, and Popular Culture
Caglar Keyder, Çağlar Keyder, Faruk Tabak
SUNY Press, 1991 - History - 260 pages
This book traces the evolution of Ottoman agriculture from commercialization of the rural peasant households into global networks of production and trade. It re-evaluates the significance attached to large-scale agricultural units as catalysts of this transformation, and assesses structures of authority and control invested in large landlords, local notables, and the rural producers. The essays in this volume offer different perspectives on the transformation of an important agrarian society in the Middle East.
