Land Ownership: Caste and Economic Status
AbstractIn this chapter I will be examining some of the features of the system of land tenure in Rajasthan and an!llysing the distribution of land ownership in Hinganiya. The underlying ~m is to demonstrate the biased distribution of land ownership particularly along caste lines and to examine the extent to which landownership and caste are related. The working hypothesis is that there is a land-wealth nexus. In later chapters I will examine the points at which wealth and landownership diverge.
