Women, land rights and rural development, how much land does a woman need?, by Esther Kingston-Mann

Summary
"This book presents a comparative history of how rural women claimed'"or were prevented from claiming'"land in the course of private and collectivist property rights revolutions in very different times and places. Using seventeenth-century England, twentieth-century Russia and the Soviet Union, and twentieth-century colonial Kenya as historical case studies'"despite their obvious and striking differences'"the book introduces women, and evidence of female agency, into the predominantly male-centered narratives of rural economic history."--Provided by publisher
