FREE ARTICLES from the Journal of Agrarian Change Land Reform debate In 
2002 Journal of Agrarian Change published "Poverty and the Distribution of 
Land" by Keith Griffin et al., in which a theoretical case was made for 
truly radical redistributive land reform that would eliminate rural 
poverty. This article sparked a debate which resulted in a subsequent 
special issue entitled "Redistributive Land Reform Today." Keith Griffin et 
al's rejoinder will be published in volume 4 issue 3.

Two articles from the debate are currently available FREE online:
