Social Democracy and the Agrarian Question

  • Athar Hussain

Abstract

The agrarian question has a paradoxical feature: agriculture and rural populations came to be noticed and to constitute a decisive political force precisely at a time when their weight in the economy was steadily decreasing. This feature characterised not only the German economy but also other European economies such as those of Belgium, France and Italy. But the agrarian question was not just a response to economic conditions and events; these indeed did play a crucial part but they cannot account for the manner in which the agrarian question was raised.
