    Land reform became an international issue in the aftermath of World War II, when the United States planned to dispossess the Junker in Prussia and actually participated in major land redistribution programs in Japan, the Republic of China, and Korea. This book, which appraises both the ethics and experiences of international involvement in land reform, is the first comprehensive review of the international aspects of this important domestic policy.
