Talking tomorrow.  If you are still planning to call, lunch time is good for me.  I have a phone conference call at 10 AM, but it should be done by 12.  I eat lunch in my office. Later in the day is also OK.

My office landline number is:  848-445-3639 (prefer)  my cell if necessary is: 732-325-4047.

Subject: Peasant Sovereignty?

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Published today (Wed 18th March 2015) in Independent Science News
Peasant Sovereignty? by Evaggelos Vallianatos.


Summary: Peasant and small-scale farming is increasingly being recognised as more productive, as more sustainable, and as democratically superior in comparison with most livelihoods and with most forms of agriculture. This recognition is being enhanced by the concept of "food sovereignty" and its increasing discussion in academic circles. Nevertheless, despite constructive developments such as a draft "UN Declaration of the Rights of Peasants and Other People Working in Rural Areas" there is still a long way to go before there is an appropriate understanding and accurate appreciation of the modern peasantry. 

Yours sincerely,

Jonathan
