Of all the scholarly work on the countryside done in pre-1917
Russia and in the Soviet Union in the 1920s, that of L.N. Kritsman
and those influenced by him - the so-called `Agrarian Marxists' -
is perhaps the least well known. However, that work was of
extremely high quality and very original. Its significance is more
than historical, since it has great relevance to the study of
peasantries in contemporary poor countries - especially to the
analysis of peasant differentiation. This volume, first published
in 1984, has been prepared by two specialists who have been working
on Kritsman and the Agrarian Marxists for several years, and will
help dispel ignorance of this important body of writing. It
consists of two substantial essays, and an abridged translation of
one of Kritsman's most important works: Class Differentiation of
the Soviet Countryside (first published in 1926 and never before
translated into English).
