Summary:
The paper attempts to develop a useful typology of peasant societies by focusing on the statal structure in which the peasants are involved. The economic dynamics of agrarian states are considered and on this basis it is determined that there are at least two types-- capital-domains and labor-domains--and therefore at least two types of peasantry. The economic variables that specify the types are employed to account for differences in the political-legal systems of the types. Analysis of selected ethnographic data is presented. A new, and hopefully more useful, definition of peasantry is presented. The analysis attempts to systematize the melange of theory concerning peasant society. The major works, especially Wolf, are considered. The analysis incorporates a theoretical framework for the study of plantation societies, previously a theoretical no-man's land.
