Rice village saga
This study aims to give a microscopic view of the process by which agricultural production systems, village community institutions, and rural people's economic well-being change under the pressure of those modernizing forces. The study is based on recurrent surveys of one village in the Province of Laguna, Philippines, since the 1960s.
The data and statistics referred to in this book are collected by the authors mainly based on eleven-round surveys. In addition to those in-village surveys, they also conducted several other surveys extending beyond the border of East Laguna Village, such as about rice harvesting, rice marketing, and rural manufacturing, which shall be specified where their outcomes will be analyzed.
