This book is a case study of Vietnam?s efforts to fight poverty using market-oriented land reforms. But what role did the reforms play in poverty reduction? Did the efficiency gains from reform come at a cost to equity? Was rising rural landlessness in the wake of reforms a sign of success or failure?
