Hall (political science, Wilfrid Laurier U., Canada), Hirsch (human geography, U. of Sydney, Australia), and Li (anthropology, U. of Toronto, Canada) explore changes in rural land relations in southeast Asia by focusing on the question of exclusion as it is produced through the interactions between regulation, force, the market, and legitimation. They present their discussion in six chapters, each of which focuses on a key process driving change in land relations: the regularization of access to land through state-backed programs of land titling, formalization, and settlement; the spatial expansion and intensification of efforts to conserve forests by restricting agriculture; the arrival of new "boom corps" that see the conversion of land to monocropped production; the conversion of land to post-agrarian uses; processes of agrarian class formation on the village scale; and the mobilization of collectivities to defend or assert access to land at the expense of other land users and other land uses.
