Example text

Thus state investment in and, to a greater or lesser extent, control over the agricultural infrastructure has been effected through a structure based on group organisation at the village level. Meanwhile, systems for social and political control in the countryside have hinged on a similar relationship between the centralised hierarchy of government and group organisation in the villages. All three countries are heirs to a tradition of hierarchical bureaucratic administration, within which a class of officials manned a structure of government reaching down from Emperor/ King through local-level rulers to the villages.

Meanwhile, although state intervention in the agricultural sector remains pervasive, the dramatic political and organisational changes that have taken place in rural areas over the course of China’s postwar history have left a different institutional legacy from that bequeathed by the incremental process of change elsewhere. 14 In South East Asia, conditions for agriculture are generally more favourable than further north so that, on the one hand, cropping patterns are more diverse, and, on the other, comparative advantage in agriculture opens up scope for exports of agricultural products, including in some cases rice.

All three countries appear to have avoided the worst of the dualism which has pervaded other parts of the Third World where resources have been concentrated in urban areas, drawing in the migrants who people the slums and informal sectors of the ever-expanding cities. 10) and the subsequent case studies will suggest that living standards and levels of welfare in rural areas generally improved, so that agricultural workers seem to have been pulled into industrial employment by the growth in opportunities rather than pushed by rural poverty.
