Agrarian Marxism is an important current within critical agrarian studies. ‘Classical’ agrarian Marxism focuses upon the ground-breaking insights into the agrarian question offered by Marx and Engels, Kautsky, Lenin and others in the late 19th and early 20th century. Briefly reviewing a voluminous literature, what striking about it is the breadth and depth of rigorous intellectual creativity that can be found within it, the substantive diversity of the arguments that can be identified, as well as the pluralism that was central to its creative diversity.
