  For Chinese, Peasant Revolt Is Rare Victory
Angry residents overturned several police cars April 10 during a peasant revolt in which police officers carrying out a raid were beaten and driven away by 20,000 residents protesting an industrial park that was eventually shut down.
By the time dawn broke, up to 20,000 peasants from the half-dozen villages that make up Huaxi township had responded to the alarm, participants recounted, and they were in no mood to bow to authority.
Peasants and workers left behind by China's economic boom increasingly have resorted to the kind of unrest that ignited in Huaxi.

  Peasant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Peasants exist in a world before the modern division of labor: a peasant must be a jack-of-all trades, handy at everything.
Peasants live to agricultural time; the "world-time", in Fernand Braudel's term, of politics and economics does not directly affect the peasant.
Peasants tend to be more conservative than urbanites, and are often very loyal to inherited power structures that define their rights and privileges and protect them from interlopers, despite their generally low status within them.

 Peasant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the great majority of pre-industrial societies, peasants constitute the bulk of the population, the authentic "silent majority".
A new consciousness of inalienable rights and new, unjust impositions from above contributed to the popular (or peasant) uprisings of the 14th century, the breakdown of the feudal system and the rise of modernity.
Once a money economy had intruded on the old agricultural order, the peasant was slowly transformed into the laborer for wages, or he might hold a precarious position as an independent smallholder, one of the "yeomen" of sentimental history.

 Grimm 189: The Peasant and the Devil
One day the peasant had been working in his field, and just as it was getting dark he was getting ready to go home when in the middle of his field he saw a pile of burning coals.
The devil was quite satisfied with that, but the cunning peasant had planted turnips.
The crop ripened, and the peasant went into the field and cut the full stalks off at ground level.

 Math Forum: Ask Dr. Math FAQ: Russian Peasant Multiplication
Russian peasant multiplication is actually a quick way to convert two numbers to binary form, multiply them together, and convert back to our number system.
The connection is not surprising, because binary numbers use base two, and Russian peasant multiplication depends on multiplying and dividing by two.
Russian peasant multiplication does the same thing, but because it leaves out several steps, the process is much faster.

 Róbinson Rojas.- REPORT ON AN INVESTIGATION OF THE PEASANT MOVEMENT IN HUNAN, by MAO TSE-TUNG (Mao Zedong), March 1927 ...   (Site not responding. Last check: )
This great mass of poor peasants, or altogether 70 per cent of the rural population, are the backbone of the peasant associations, the vanguard in the overthrow of the feudal forces and the heroes who have performed the great revolutionary task which for long years was left undone.
Once the peasants have their organization, the first thing they do is to smash the political prestige and power of the landlord class, and especially of the local tyrants and evil gentry, that is, to pull down landlord authority and build up peasant authority in rural society.
Comparatively speaking, the peasants were not so much concerned with the president of the Republic, the provincial military governor [18] or the county magistrate; their real "bosses" were these rural monarchs.

 The lifestyle of Medieval Peasants
The lifestyle of peasants in Medieval England was extremely hard and harsh.
The peasants were at the bottom of the Feudal System and had to obey their local lord to whom they had sworn an oath of obedience on the Bible.
This means that they are bound by law and custom to plough the field of their masters, harvest the corn, gather it into barns, and thresh and winnow the grain; they must also mow and carry home the hay, cut and collect wood, and perform all manner of tasks of this kind.

 Medieval Technology Pages - Peasant Houses
The hut of the cottar, the poorest peasants in a typical village, was typically a single room perhaps sixteen by twelve feet.
It seems clear that peasants did not live with their animals out of choice, but rather because structures like the long house were the economic solution to a problem.
More prosperous peasants built separate barns for their animals, placing the barn at right angles to the house to emphasize the distinction.

 Lenin: Social-Democracy's Attitude Towards the Peasant Movement
Indeed, it is the revolutionary-democratic aspect of the peasant uprisings and a particular organisation of the rural proletariat in a class party that at present form the crux of the matter for us, as distinct from the petty-bourgeois Socialist-Revolutionaries.
Class antagonism between the rural proletariat and the peasant bourgeoisie is unavoidable, and we disclose it in advance, explain it, and prepare for the struggle on the basis of that antagonism.
We are in favour of a peasant uprising.

 Journal of Social History: Writing Peasants: Studies on Peasant Literacy in Early Modern Northern Europe

Tine Damsholt discusses patriotic discourse in Danish peasant writings, criticizing the notion that nineteenth century peasantry was "totally unfamiliar with the word 'Denmark', with patriotic notions of the fatherland and the patriotic ideal of a good citizen" (98).

 REPORT ON AN INVESTIGATION OF THE PEASANT MOVEMENT IN HUNAN
The development of the peasant movement in Hunan may be divided roughly into two periods with respect to the counties in the province's central and southern parts where the movement has already made much headway.
Second, since the rise of the peasant movement the price of grain has dropped--it was six yuan a picul last spring but only two yuan last winter--and the problem of food has become less serious for the people.
With the rise of the peasant associations orders have been given specifying the required width--three, five, seven or ten feet, according to the requirements of the different routes--and each landlord along a road has been ordered to build a section.

In the thirty-two days from January 4 to February 5, I called together fact-finding conferences in villages and country towns, which were attended by experienced peasants and by comrades working in the peasant movement, and I listened attentively to their reports and collected a great deal of material.
Those who talk about the peasants "going too far" seem at first sight to be different from those who say "It's terrible!" as mentioned earlier, but in essence they proceed from the same standpoint and likewise voice a landlord theory that upholds the interests of the privileged classes.

In addition to the peasant houses, Cuexcomate also had a small palace, a temple, a public plaza, and a special civil building that may have been a telpochcalli school.
Nahuatl-language census records from soon after the Spanish conquest tell us that small houses such as these were home to either nuclear families or joint families that consisted of more than one married couple.
To judge from the nature of the artifacts found around each house, the peasants of Capilco and Cuexcomate were quite well-off economically.

 MySpace.com - Continuous Peasant - OAKLAND/ San Francisco - Indie / Alternative / Powerpop - ...
Here's the SHORT VERSION I guess you could say Continuous Peasant was formed in 2002 in Oakland California by long-time busker, and poet Chris Stroffolino, but it's both older than that and newer than that.
Continuous Peasant doesn't exactly combine music and poetry (hell, if you want the poetry that stands up on the page you can check out Stroffolino's books), but we have been called 'literate garage rock' by the East Bay Express, which isn't bad for a three word description, at least of some our songs.
Currently in the studio recording new songs, Stroffolino hopes to be back to doing live shows with a new lineup of Continuous Peasant by fall of 2006 (though he ain't gonna be jumpin' around like he used to).
