The Journal of Agrarian Change is a peer-reviewed academic journal established in 2001 covering agrarian political economy. The journal covers historical and contemporary studies of the social relations and dynamics of production, power relations in agrarian formations and ownership structures and their processes of change.
The journal's founding editorial board included 31 of the 33 board members of the Journal of Peasant Studies. Henry Bernstein and Terence Byres, two of the founding editors, published an article in the first issue on the history of the Journal of Peasant Studies, explaining why a new and less doctrinaire journal was needed. They expressed a desire that it should have more coverage of historical debates, feminist scholarship, agrarian technological change and culture and that regions such as Japan, North Africa, and West Asia should be covered.
