Classes and Agrarian Transition in Pakistan

Mahmood Hasan Khan


This is a study of class formation and agrarian transition in
Pakistan. The process of class differentiation under way is a
manifestation of capitalist development. The agrarian transition in
Pakistan is reflected by the disintegration of the peasant and feudal
systems. The approach adopted in this paper demystifies the process of
agricultural development in an underdeveloped country where, with the
expansion of forces of production, the precapitalist relations of
production are slowly dissolving. It should also help in discovering the
mechanism by which agricultural surplus is extracted from direct
producers and rural poverty is perpetuated.
