The campesino reality: co-operation and change


, : The campesino reality: co-operation and change. Estudios de la realidad campesina: cooperation y cambio, Geneva, Switzerland: Inst. Invest. Naciones Unidas Desarrollo Social., 421. Price: $ 4.75,

Five case studies are made of the ways in which existing social institutions in various countries have worked with the co-operatives but in the end, through either co-option or paternalism have subverted or emasculated the campesino co-operatives. In Venezuela, it was the political parties, in Ecuador the paternalism of the Institute of Agrarian Reform, which were responsible for failure. In Colombia the influence of the church is identified as a source of failure.

Several human studies have shown that low-level exposure to environmental contaminants, such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and organochlorine pesticides, negatively influences birth outcomes. However, the effects of low-level exposure to pol...
