The fourth in a major series that examines the status of land reforms in India, Land Reforms in India, Volume 4 critically reviews the implementation of land reform legislation in the state of Karnataka. It presents the most recent data available in order to provide a holistic understanding of both the historical evolution and the current grassroots situation of land reforms in the state. Written by scholars, activists, and administrators, the chapters in this book examine a wide range of issues, including the central questions concerning the direction Karnataka should now take with regard to land reforms. The options considered include implementing the traditional concept of land reforms but with renewed vigor, maintaining the status quo and letting the existing laws continue in their own pace of implementation, or liberalizing land reform laws in line with the country∆s new economic policies. The contributors agree that whichever policy option is adopted, political will and public awareness are the two most important factors in determining the success of future efforts at land reforms in the context of the rapidly changing socioeconomic scenario. The marked absence of jargon and irrelevant theoretical concepts imbues this volume with tremendous practical significance. It is essential reading not only for administrators, policymakers, and activists, but also for scholars in the areas of agrarian studies, political economy, development studies, peasant studies, and policy studies.
