Land Reform Policies in Iran

Abstract

Land reform (1962-71), contrary to a widespread view, gave land on highly favorable terms to all of Iran's 1.8 million tenant cultivators and benefited 74% of all farmers and 67% of rural households. It thus radically changed landownership and resulted in a far-reaching socioeconomic tranformation. It did not, however, result in political stability. This article identifies some of the sources of error in the literature on land reform in Iran and shows that official land reform data are correct and consistent with numerous census results.
