A class analysis of sharecropping

Serap Ayse Kayatekin, University of Massachusetts Amherst

Abstract

The appearance, disappearance and reappearance of sharecropping in different social contexts and different time periods has been regarded as a puzzle by analysts of both the neoclassical and alternative theories. This dissertation is an attempt to define the conceptual terrain from which the puzzle of sharecropping emerges in non-neoclassical theories and to show a way out of this puzzle by conceptualising sharecropping in terms of class as the appropriation and distribution of surplus labour conditioned by different natural and social processes. ^
