CRUZ, Suenya Santos da. The phenomenon of pluriactivity in rural areas: family-based farming. Serv. Soc. Soc. [online]. 2012, n.110, pp.241-269. ISSN 0101-6628. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-66282012000200003.
The article aims at exploring the contradictions of the category pluriactivity to explain the persistence of family-based/peasant farming in the state of Rio de Janeiro. To do so, we take theoretical-methodological ideas from the Marxist social theory developed by Marx himself, Lenin and Kautsky, to understand the current family-based farming in its economic, social and political dimensions.
